What Ensures that An Events Coordinator Getting Paid a Chamber Bonus Would Treat All Comers Fairly?

15 December 2010 at 7:34:52 PM

One of the issues I have with an events coordinator using 4b tax money and paid BY the Chamber is intensified with the knowledge that that person would receive bonuses paid by the Chamber, unless the Chamber would pay bonuses across the board, regardless of who booked the event. (haven't heard that spelled out). Would the chamber events coordinator get *dibs* on venues before other 3rd parties? The actual people who book are at the city or county, of course, but should there be the ability to book up venues way in advance, FOR the Chamber? Seems like there is possibility for some unfairness towards non-Chamber events.

The Chamber of Commerce sent out an email to members and, noticeably missing from the events listed on the right, are Christmas in the Park,and the Arts & Crafts Glen Rose Meander, neither of which are sponsored Chamber events.

I'm very disappointed with this Mr. Best. Apparently, he's just a male version of you-know-who. He seems to be most concerned with his personal agenda and has successfully railroaded himself into prominent positions in order to execute this agenda. Unfortunately, the city government has allowed this and everyone else, including the Downtown Association, just has to gulp it down.

Why on earth would he not 'advertise' Christmas in the Park and the Arts and Crafts event? Why is the city allowing the Chamber of Commerce to have this kind of power? Just what is the agenda of the Chamber, anyway? Frankly, I'm not at all impressed. This taxpayer funded position for 'events coordinator' is inappropriate use of taxpayer money. No!!

Let Mr. Huckaby and his office coordinate instead of some private business. He is well-paid and well-funded for this. Simple. The city has no business handing over control for downton events to some private organization that clearly does not embrace the community.
