ANC2c Chair Doris Brooks cancelled tonight's ANC meeting upon failing to stop attendees from videotaping the gathering. The videotapers had received prior approval from the United House of Prayer Church to tape the meeting, but at tonight's gathering, the Church ultimately deferred to Chairperson Brooks's desire not to have the meeting videotaped. See one of the outrageous videos of Chairperson Brooks in action here.
Among many other things, what's irksome about Chairperson Brooks's unilateral cancellation of the meeting is that she wasted the time of the citizens who showed up to this meeting and that she has now called off two consecutive ANC meetings, thereby causing countless delays in projects needing ANC approval.
Fortunately work precluded me from what, in hindsight, turned out to be a huge waste of time.
