Mail

  • Nothing Pressing

Old Business

  • COVID Check-in
    • Arguments:
      • In favor of closing the space:
        • we’re not a necessary service to keep running
        • We contribute to the potential spread of disease when the healthcare system is highly taxed
        • Exponential growth of disease rewards early action
      • Against closing the space:
        • Contractors using the space use it for their livelihood
        • Its against what PS1 is all about
        • Attrition will increase
        • The board doesn’t have the authority
        • Why would you take away the one good thing in my life
          • My wife left me and how dare you. Now what am I supposed to do, go to my sad sad apartment alone. She took the dog
