28. Citizen Comments (Consideration for Future Agenda) -- Rodger Dowdell reminded the members, that on Jan. 28, 2013, they were issued a Writ of Mandamus, commanding them to do their duty as is mandated in the 5th Article of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. Dowdell questioned members knowledge and intent for not recognizing a "Common Law Grand Jury," citing the Federal Case ruling (U.S v. Williams Page 47,  A).  During Dowdell's extended explanation, Bustle reminded Dowdell his time was up, Dowdell asked Bustle if he was denying him of his civil right, and Dowdell continued until his microphone was turned off.       


Alan Anderson and Bruce Williams, both in the building industry, asked commissioners to reconsider their decision to exclude "Appliances" from their Secondhand Dealers Ordinance. Both men were joined by two members of the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, who also supported reevaluating the decision to exclude  appliances in the ordinance vote. -- (Full Story)
