Self Deceiving Hype
The BCC was Thrilled"?
If you listen to the audio of the Villages October 2nd meeting, the County Liaison reported:
"Board of Commissioners were thrilled with the Town Hall!"
"They were quite pleased"

Now, I don't know anything but what the Liaison stated, but the only reason the BCC might be "thrilled" with such a pathetic attempt at reaching out to the community is:
In this election season, no hard or interesting or useful questions were asked!
That, in itself, is a very sad position for the current elected officials.
Of course, added to the seat warming Chair's welcome to the "large crowd" (of cronies) and who was invited by the BCC to interview for a position (filled by Damon), it fits into a pattern, a very poor pattern, but it is consistent.
They weren't totally evil,
nor were they particularly virtuous,
but their incompetence, deceit, snake oil, and intimidation
made them the Villages of the Darned
