Thank you for your points about the vote, continued killing and private property tallies.
All valid information that the Commission needs to make a decision.

We need for the public and Commission to review the information that will be presented by Dr. DeNicola on the 12th and will have a vote the following meeting January 25th to ensure adequate time on such an important issue for the community. HSUS plans to attend as well and give their input and discuss the sterilization program.

Thank you.

Commissioners,

I understand that you may be voting for sharpshooting on January 12, 2016 instead of January 25, 2016. Does this mean that you will be ending the archery program early, or will the killing continue after your vote? If it continues to the end of archery season, you will have eleven additional days of deer killing and you would not know the true number of deer killed by the archers selected by White Buffalo. 

Additionally, what steps are you taking to find out the number of deer killed by private hunters? This could greatly affect the death toll and your decision to opt for additional killing..

Through a Right To Know, the short list of residents offering to grant temporary access for the purposes of killing deer is 60 residents, a far cry from the alleged 1400 signatures wanting deer killed. I would like to remind you that there are over 250 Not In My Yard signs displayed by Mt. Lebanon residents.

Perhaps a different type of presidency. And perhaps a better year.

I see a difference already. I sent four emails to the commission in the past two days and received answers to all of my questions. the last president never did that. If I did hear from him, it was a generic "thank you for your input" type of response.

HSUS will be there to talk about sterilization? It's a little late for that, Kelly.

Good to see that Kelly is getting off to a good start in the communications department. Too bad she has no power on key issues.

Kelly is two-faced. She tells you one thing, then she votes the opposite way.
Just like Ostergaard. Never forget: follow the votes, follow the money.

Kelly flip-flops. It may be because she is inept.

The good news is that the vote will NOT take place on January 12, as McGill and the prokill commissioners were pushing for. They even had Steve McLean convinced that the vote should take place on Jan. 12.

And we know for a fact the vote is already decided upon....keep killing/slaughtering excessively with no basis for doing so.

Tony won't let his money go away.

Kelly is part of the new progressives.. you see them in the city.. the young well educated that don't need a mansion or a big car to be happy. UNF they are a very some minority,, in Lebo.. the old guard whether they be Dem OR Rep have the $$ and spend the $$ on plants..and they don't want the animals munching on their "investments" the regular people like myself spend our limited $ to put up fences of throw fishing nets over our plants..
When a person who lives in a $500,000 house calls his commissioner ie Mr Silverman about the deer eating his plants,, don't you thinks he's going to take care of their problems ASAP...unf.. it's just the way of world.. people with power and privilege always get their issues addressed.. For the new commissioner McLean,,he doesn't care about Ashland Ave or PA Blvd.. all he is considered about his Mission Hills residents

Kelly is progressive? Well, maybe for Mt. Lebanon. I'm afraid that she loses out to the old guard here when it comes to "well educated." Did Kelly go to college?

I don't think Kelly is inept. But I think there is some wheeling and dealing behind the scenes that may influence her votes sometimes.

2:13, Kelly is progressive? Well, perhaps she could come across that way in Mt. Lebanon. Anywhere else, she would be viewed as---- Kelly. I'm afraid that the old guard wins out over Kelly on the well-educated front.

Again, Kelly is well educated? That's news to me.

If Kelly were a progressive, she would not be sitting on the Mt. Lebanon commission. Somehow the words Kelly and Progressive do not fit into the same sentence.
