Yesterday, the Visit Pensacola board of directors held its first meeting. The meeting was primarily organizational and was properly held in the “Sunshine.” The board approved its bylaws and elected Collier Merrill its first chairman, Robin Reshard Vice Chair, Tosh Belsinger Treasurer and Gen. Duane Thiessen Secretary.

    Not sure the process went exactly as it should, but I can’t help but be optimistic about the business community taking the reigns here. Government can do a lot of things, but this is a situation in which the members clearly have a higher personal stake in being successful.

    I disagree with Rick’s assessment that the Visit Pensacola meeting was properly held in the sunshine.

    I believe any organization that has news releases, such as
