Roundtable outcomes = community's opinion?

Question: I find it misleading to refer to the outcomes at any roundtable meeting, as the "community’s opinion."

Answer: The people elected to the BOE and hired into leadership positions at B-P represent “the district” at the roundtables. The taxpayers who accept the invitation to have input into the decision making process by providing their opinions and insights represent "the community." The phrase was not intended to be taken as literally meaning the majority of persons living in the district. It is certainly accurate to say that the majority of persons living in the district have not attended a roundtable discussion. More care will be taken in the future to eliminate this perception.
