Carr: I think that would be problematic. That comes pretty close to a meeting.
Carr: As long as you're not directing her to do anything.
Brautigam: Briefings are phone calls. They ask qs that I can't answer and have to research.
Op editor Quentin Young has OK'd.
Yes, Young says, we need to make sure we're conveying accurate information bc "we don't want to be like leadership at the federal level."
Yay! I've moved from chopped liver to maybe like canned tuna.
Some concern with fitting stuff in bc COVID updates take so long.
Tonight's COVID briefing took 2.5 hrs. "No reason to believe" they won't be that long every week, he says. "That's got to be absolutely our No. 1 priority."
Also, I don't think we should fight with each other right now on things that might be controversial.
TAB, OSBT, Planning Board, WRAB, CU South subcommittee, etc.
Carr: Yes. Expires on 12 or 21 of April. We could just do extending moratorium on consent, though.
Friend: Yes. State leg shut down under emergency. We should too, for non-COVID stuff.
Carr: It is a crime to violate the charter.
Laughter from Friend (and me).
Yates: Oh, that's better.
"We never have bickered much on these appointments."
Fine with "punting initiative petitions" to a later meeting. Forgot that was on the calendar, too.
"Most" of their decisions are smart ones, he says.
