Hmmm…it looks like Heather Carruthers has deleted some (all?) of my comments to her posts on her Facebook page. I guess she doesn’t much care for my question-asking and fact-finding. My questions regarding the Florida Keys Stewardship seem to be gone. Only Carruthers’s reply is still there.
Now if this were a personal Facebook page, she would have every right to do that. In fact, I would consider it a cyber-foul on my part to post comments related to official business on her personal Facebook page. Especially critical ones. I would not do that. That’s intrusive. However, this particular Facebook page is dedicated to county business. It is identified as County Commissioner Heather Carruthers’s page. So I would think related comments and questions would be welcome.
In addition to scrubbing existing comments, it looks like Carruthers has turned off all commenting. Lol. That’s interesting. I don’t comment very frequently. I wonder if somebody else has been posting uncomfortable questions, too.
I’m no social media genius but I’m sure there’s a work-around. Maybe I could share Carruthers’s posts to the Real Poop Facebook page and comment there. Not as good as commenting directly, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
Gee, I wonder why a “dedicated” public servant like Heather Carruthers wouldn’t want input from the public? Maybe it has to do with this, or maybe it’s this. Who knows?
