George Paphitis

Comments at 1/23/01 GGNRA Advisory Commission Meeting

My name is Dr. George Paphitis. I have lived and practiced in the San Francisco Bay Area for twenty one years. For the past year I have attended the meetings of this Commission. It has become patently obvious to me and others that these proceedings are a sham, or should I say, charade, as one of your colleagues so aptly put it at the last meeting. You have consistently turned a blind eye and deaf ear to the pleas and exhortations of the citizens for whom you are supposed to be an ombudsman. You have become a bloated rubber-stamping clone of the very organization whose policies you are charged with overseeing. Commissioners, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Frankly, I am disappointed and disgusted. I only hope that when the term of this Commission expires in October 2002, the next Commission, if there be a next Commission, will be comprised of those individuals who both respect and truly represent the citizens of the San Francisco Bay Area which clearly the present Commission does not.

The previous remarks are my own views and do not necessarily reflect those of any organization with which I am affiliated.
Thank you.
