To the Readers' Forum:
In a recent article, one of the new JPS board members commented on the ''lack of public attendance at board meetings.'' He said with lack of public opinion, ''It's just us trying to make the decisions for the city.''
Just to enlighten you, sir: the public's opinion does not matter to this board. If you give your opinion, ask questions or voice a concern, you are bullied and laughed at. If things weren't kept secret and the board was more open about discussing issues and listening to the people on the front lines, more people would be willing to become involved at the meetings.
If no one is going to listen to what you have to say, why waste your time going to a meeting? You learn more from the newspaper the next day than you do sitting at a board meeting.
Let's face it - you look ridiculous fighting for an issue that's already been decided.
