    I have never seen any of this group in front of county council with the Indian Land Action Council speaking against the county raising our taxes. I have never seen any of the group at the Planning Commission meetings with ILAC, asking developers for 50-foot undisturbed buffers or connectivity through developments for better traffic flow.
