Comments on the LAKE blog or facebook page
are not necessarily endorsed by LAKE,
even if we promote them to be main blog posts.
Most blog posts by LAKE people are not necessarily endorsed by LAKE, either.
Chronic readers will have noted that we don’t even agree among ourselves
on a number of issues and often criticize each other.
Remember, the purpose of LAKE is transparency and dialog.
The only posts that are endorsed by LAKE as an organization
are those few that say by someone “for LAKE”.
Remember LAKE’s motto:
Citizen dialog for transparent process
Comments and posts on this blog are part of that process.
We look forward to your comments and reports!
