why do we pick an arbitrary number of options, isn't this all about negotiation,
.....it happens every day in life, whether you are buying a card or an appliance or making a low ball offer on ebay
how will you know what we can get if we present our options first?
so to speak, leaving money on the table.
imho, this poll does nothing to helping us get the most bang for our buck.
the poll serves our informational interests only, to see what other barners think.
to bring this poll to the meeting will only increase the chance that we could be short changing ourselves with the limit and size req's
who is to say that they may offer a much better proposal than the one that we provide or they would be willing to look at better numbers than the poll lists?
just doesn't make sense to take a chance and possibly low ball ourselves out of a much better position.
let the council speak first.
we also need to know that because we have organized the march on washington, you can bet the ranch that we have a better chance "far from a guarantee " that we are not afraid of legal action and public demonstration. the march and legal action gives all of us a" little bit bigger" hammer at the table
btw, do not give us the stuff that party boat operators have a singular purpose, good negotiating is good business for everyone Who do you think has made the majority of the financial contributions for the legal action for the sea bass closure.
however believe me we all appreciate any contribution to fund.
