    Just a clarification….it appears the only thing on the agenda for the 19th is a request by former councilor Al Brien to adress the Invenergy plan, but I believe his focus is on potential violations of the open meetings act (they held 5? meetings behind closed doors, when much of what was discussed probably should have been held in public). They are shooting for a vote around January 9th, that’s when we need everyone out in force.
