"Kauai county council meetings being live-streamed..!"

Kaua'i county council meetings are now available via live-streaming on your computer every Wednesday morning commencing at 9:00 a.m. What a great asset being to observe council meetings live! This saves gas and time for anyone interested in local politics.

Watch county council meetings at;

The only thing missing is being able to testify from home, with the price of gas and most people do not have a 500.00 a month car allowance as do the council-members.

There is a simple solution, the county could download "Skype" so people from home could testify. It would be an added asset to the live streaming process. Skype is free computer to computer and would actually be more controlled than live testimony, since the chair could easily enforce the 3 minute limit by use of 'skype,' people would have to stay within the three minute limit or be cut off.

Please consider adding skype to council live-streams.

One more question for the county council, does public testimony really matter? Has any-ones public testimony ever changed the mind of any council member on anything? My guess is not.
