It was very informative and there were lots of people there who were hearing the message for the first time. In fact one woman said it was scaring the hell out of her.
But do you know who wasn't there? Highland spokesperson Michael Daniher. He has been at every public meeting, every Council meeting and quite frankly every letter opening in the past 5 years, but an important meeting like this-nada, no show, nothing. My understanding was he was even invited to speak at the event but declined.
I wondered why he was a no show, but then I realized it must be because after his lame attempt to bamboozle Dale Goldhawk on Goldhawk's radio show on Friday April 15, 2011, he was still licking his wounds.
In fact after Goldhawk got Daniher twisting and caught in the very fact he would not answer a simple question with a simple yes or no, Goldhawk offered to put him on hold, should Michael want to enlighten the listeners further on the issue, to which Michael readily agreed to. At that point he probably needed to go change his shorts anyway.
So when I really got thinking about it, I am pretty sure this is where Daniher still is:
ON HOLD, WAITING FOR GOLDHAWK TO
GET BACK TO HIM
