Bye, Bye Bridget?

This past weekend as I was informed from two separate sources that the land plan video produced by the Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning is going to be edited. The editing will result in the removal of the minute long piece featuring Bridget Mugane, the president of the Howard County Citizens Association. Her appearance in this video was the subject of two previous posts (How Did This Happen and How Did This Happen Follow Up) and my column in last months Business Monthly. Apparently Kim Flowers, the Deputy Director of Planning & Zoning announced shortly become the Business Monthly hit the streets that the video will be modified.

The question of course is when. For now, Ms Mugane still appears five minutes into the video. A friend of mine whose husband works for the county commented, “It's government. Probably only take another 6-9 months to change that minute!”

Stay tuned.

In the interim, does anyone have a suggestion for what should replace the "Mugane Minute?"

60 seconds, land use related....go!

Oh, thank God, you've quieted Bridgett Mugane, thanks to the county jello-spined connivers. Pat yourselves on the back, that's it, stand in a big circle (but watch the guy behind you).

What will you do when someone who is not so conciliatory hits the scene?

You people are mostly amusing, but your gluttony of power is over the top repulsive at times.

Ombudsman? What a joke. CHEER LEADER FOR THE DEVLOPER COMMUNITY.

...and forget about pointing to the anon thing, you bloggers were all anon until you felt you had enough power to come out of the closet, then you forgot who you really were. Get your feet back on mother Earth.

You got no leg to stand on with that crap.

If you meant to somehow insinuate that somehow Bridgett Mugane is conciliatory I am afraid you missed the mark. That is certainly not the impression that I and others in the community have.

As for amusing you, I am happy to be of service.

I don't get your point about the anon thing. This blog has always been wide open and welcoming to anonymous commenters and will remain so.

HCCA, on the other hand, does NOT welcome anonymous comments on their listserv. The local blogs are light years ahead of HCCA in that respect.

And no one has "quited" Bridget Mugane. She can run her mouth where ever any other citizen is free to do so.

Get over yourself, anon 8:14.

who is Bridget Mugane? Except star in this video what has she done that so spectacular for the citizens of Howard County?
I'm confused. Are we talking about a real live person of importance or someone filled with self-importance? Please don't answer, it's not important that I know more.

It looks like the County did in fact follow through and edit Mugane out of that video. Bye Bye Bridget!

Oh, really?

To be fair we now must peel away the ugly tentacles of the anti-citizen chamber of commerce from the invasive grasp it has on local pols.

Anon 5:57 PM,

Anti citizen chamber of commerce?

As far as I know the chamber is made up of citizens strongly vested in the community.

That's a good thing in my opinion.
