To All,

Below please find the makeup of the Board of the WTC Memorial Committee

It would be very interesting to see how each of these members feel about the current design for the memorial.

The funny thing is they never got a say in the matter.

The Executive Committee (who are not listed on the website) are the only ones who voted.

They actually voted on something that was not even on the agenda.

Not surprisingly the minutes of that meeting are not posted on the website.

Doesn’t seem very democratic does it?

So we wind up with a memorial that is supposed to represent the “Cradle of Democracy” (their term not ours) that:

Was decided by an elite group of hand picked members.

Has been commandeered by our mayor because he can raise money (how is this not a conflict of interest)

Will make no mention of 9/11.

Will not contain an American flag.

nd more importantly treat the victims with as little respect as possible.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone as this is they same way they have treated the recovery effort.

To think that anyone believes that by listing the company names would make this a corporate memorial is beyond comprehension.

You just wait to see how prominently the corporate donors get listed once it is completed.

We are sure that they will not perceive that as a problem.

The almighty dollar has always been the deciding factor in this whole process.
