As my list proves, some mayors and City Councils made those decisions, bowing to threats of violence or at least unilaterally- without input from the people.
You think that's ok.
I do not.
That's WHAT THEY DID.
(...) On Sunday, Cuba was also reckoning with the damage from Hurricane Irma, which roared along the island nation’s northern coast on Saturday.
Although there have been no reported fatalities or casualties, Havana awoke Sunday morning to substantial damage. The capital’s inhabitants, who spent the night in darkness after authorities cut power as a precaution, found fallen trees, mangled lampposts, and smashed water tanks. Floodwaters reached more than 600 yards into the city.
But damage in the capital was light compared with elsewhere on the island. In the coastal city of Matanzas, 60 miles east, one-story houses were completely underwater, and damage to Cayo Romano and Cayo Coco, popular tourist islands, was severe. A video posted on Facebook showed hotel roofs caved in, and mounds of concrete and coils of steel in lobbies. The northern keys are home to more than 50 all-inclusive hotels, which provide essential hard currency for Cuba.
The Cuban government immediately began relief efforts, deploying security forces in large numbers to the hardest-hit areas, along with convoys of trucks carrying food and heavy equipment to help remove debris.
“Cuba is very organized,” said Orlando Eorlsando, 53, as he replaced his front door with bloated plywood in Havana. “The priority of the government is to keep people safe and preserve life.”
While the Cuban response seemed to be a well-oiled machine, elsewhere in the Caribbean the government reaction has been halting, critics say.
Town Halls can be accomplished effectively--if that is indeed the desire of the people in charge.
I'm an old lying buffoon.
Don't be so hard on yourself, but you really must stop all this intentionally deceptive parsing of quotes.

As such some of them might be "good people" but they believe in racist and hateful ideals.
I think people should learn how to talk to each other about important issues, and make these decisions locally.
