draft committee: several intellectual members had been selected to look into the complexity of the state's and city's
latest changes in the therapeutic massage licensing requirements. few sensitive issues had been brought up to the attention
of the new draft committee, who must re-open some cases, analyse and make any careful considerations without any prejudice
or favoritism from all parties involved in the previous decision-making process, that may have or may not have been rejected.
the draft committee will not decide on the actual facts nor insist what the consequences will be as a result. it will be reviewed
for suggestions that will be presented to the proper department.(health dept.)
other comment, apart from the above
issues, it is decided that the advisory committee will hold an emergency meeting, should any critical issue be brought up
on short notice. all members will be notified.
2. with a growing list of invitational requests for our newly-appointed
mayor to appear at so many different functions, it is difficult for all the members to know of each and every events the mayor
attends. the advisory committee has proposed a public announcement/itiniery of his scheduled events to inform our asian audiences.
the committee hopes this will show the asian community, how personable, always smiling, and charismatic our mayor is!
announcements will include: opening of new businesses, ground digging of new constructions, presentation of special
awards, quincy beauty contests?, etc. any requests for the presence of the mayor, will be subject to screening by the appropriate
party before any decision can be made.
this concludes our meeting, should anything be missed, please advise.
