Remember the story of the Spanish prisoner. For many years he was confined in a dungeon...One day it occurred to him to push the door of his cell. It was open; and it had never been locked.

Isanti Chamber Call to Action - Comedy or Tragedy

Ok I have a copy of the Isanti Chambers "Call to Action".... the Chamber has picked to mobilize because The Ambassador program feels slighted... I had asked the Isanti Ambassadors to attend the retirement of long term City Clerk... They had asked me to fill out a form to request their presence... I said seriously... and I forgot the whole thing... a side note is I was the only one to even think of inviting the Ambassadors to the event in the first place... it never even occurred to anyone else... Apparently I hurt their feelings because the Isanti Area Chamber of Commerce has issued a "Call to Action" against me.... they are mobilizing their members to attend the City Council meeting...

The Chamber did not issue a call to action when water and sewer rates were increased which actually affects their businesses... they did call to action with ideas to help the business community... they do not attend Council or Economic Development meetings... but for a chance to complain about me there is a "Call to Action" ... I do not know whether to laugh or cry...
