Most public comment sections of meeting are usually mundane and boring, with many public meetings rarely receiving any comments at all, but the public comments section the last few weeks in Medford have been like watching a real life soap opera. In the last two installments we got to hear from the Carns brothers, and got their side of the story. So, since some folks are asking for the neighbors side of things, I figured it’s best to hear it right from the horse breeder’s mouth.
The first video below was taken at the April 5th, 2021 Medford Council meeting, where in between the twin Carns brothers, Susan McBride got to tell her story. The three videos located below the council hearing video, were submitted by McBride to Medford’s clerk, Kathy Burger, and were used as evidence for Beth Portocalis to write violation notices on the Carns farm. In the last video, McBride is clearly trespassing on the Carns property, even entering a building unannounced. What is extremely troubling, is that the township used an illegally obtained video to write violation notices against the farm, yet did nothing about the illegal trespassing.
Just days after the video was taken, Portocalis sent a message to McBride, reminding her that the meeting that evening was to start at seven o’clock. McBride responds and asks Beth to proof read her comments, calling it, a “pain in the tukiss” to write the comments she made at that nights meeting.
With the next council meeting looming this Tuesday night, many are wondering what the government officials side of the story will be, but first, let’s hear from a self proclaimed, Karen, who she says, was only by force.
