Letter writer Jane Fulcher took this picture Tuesday at the Islands Planning Commission on St. Simons Island and said Glynn County Commissioner Dale Provenzano allowed people to be stopped from entering the full meeting room.

We applaud your April 19th editorial on the proposed hotel on Ocean Boulevard.

As you suggested, we went to the IPC meeting to review the plans and have our voices heard.

However, much to our distress, we were barred from this public meeting by none other than our own islands commissioner, Dale Provenzano.

No space, he said, as did a burly fireman brought in for the occasion.

No wonder citizens have lost confidence in our “public servants.”
