Yesterday, I called the newly appointed HADCO Commission member Shannon Gammie at the number listed on her application for public office.
Given our objections to her appointment, I was not even going to bother to do so. However, I did contact the other person who was appointed with Ms. Gammie, Ernie Luna. It was based on Mr. Luna’s suggestion and encouragement that I decided to go ahead and give it a try.
I contacted her to set up a time for her to meet with a small group of her constiutients, but she might not know this because she did not call back. Instead she sent me the followng email–although Ionly left my phone number.
You will note, she sent a cc to the HADCO Ex Director, whom Gammie is personal friend with, and DC Commissioner Susan Morgan.

Subject: Home Phone Number
I understand you have called my unlisted home phone number to speak with me about concerns you have in regard to Hadco, and my appointment.
I look forward to meeting you in person; but, I request you do not contact me at home on my unlisted number again nor during my office hours. The appointment to the Hadco board is a volunteer position. I take this appointment extremely seriously, and will honor my obligations according to the board rules.
As I can see from your comments to NR Today, and your blog- you obviously have items you wish addresseed about HADCO. I understand your a concerned public citizen and I respect this, and will be happy to listen to all your concerns in the public forum on record during the board meetings. However, I will not have private discussions with you now or at anytime in the future about HADCO, HADCO’s ED or my private life. I am sure you can respect that I feel all business in relation to HADCO should be discussed in a public forum on record so there are no misunderstandings or miscommunications.
Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to meeting you in person.
