Edge on Demand: Bad Politics?

Tools

by WCCB News Edge

 County Commission meetings are intended to be moments where the public interacts with our elected leaders.  Especially when something that affects you is on the agenda.  That's when you show up and want to be heard.  But that's not the way it always works out, especially with modern technology.  

Teachers looking for better pay showed up at Wednesday's Commissioner's meeting, and technically, they weren't supposed to talk about money because of county rules about the budget, but put that aside for a moment.  During the comments, some commissioners hit Twitter, some complaining about the teachers acting like bullies.  So should elected officials be allowed to tweet during public meetings, or should they be paying attention to you?
