Thank you for a well-written summary of the meeting! I wasn't able to attend in person and really appreciate the write-up.
Civility is for morons and jerks!!
>> "The corporation 'can be a citizen,' Igoe said. 'More and more they realize they have a responsibility to the community' and are 'making contributions to the community.'"
Google could learn to be a more responsible "citizen" by paying their dues in taxes rather than choosing favorites and doing this or that in Mountain View to polish up their image once in a blue moon.
On a side note, I will not believe a corporation is a "citizen" until one is executed in Texas or Georgia.
Sabrina, is Google not paying their full property tax bill? Honest question. I'm just wondering if you're referring to some article that I missed.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
