An amusing shot at Captain of Industry Al Melvin today by Blog For Arizona's David Safier, from information gathered by a few other blogs:
This same Al Melvin is Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Economic Development and Jobs Creation. The committee had 11 meetings scheduled. Seven meetings were called off. The four actual meetings totaled 3 hours and 53 minutes, with the final meeting, all the way back in February, lasting a whopping two minutes.
Here is the committee schedule:
1/12/11: Not Meeting
1/26/11: Met, 8 minutes
2/2/11: Met, 1 hour, 14 minutes
2/9/11: Met, 2 hours, 29 minutes
2/16/11: Met, 2 minutes
2/23/11: Not Meeting
3/2/11: Not Meeting
3/16/11: Not Meeting
Senator Melvin had a Job to do — help create jobs — and he didn't do it. He didn't even put forth the effort to hold meetings to discuss the issue.
