Newly appointed EVPL Board member Richard Clements made a motion to cancel the Saturday event. There was no second.

“I expected it. I think the people at least deserve a voice," Clements said. "There’s a lot of energy on that side, that’s one of the reasons why I was appointed, to bring balance. I made my effort, it is what is it. At least the people got a voice.”
