We need to start a new thread and label Jack Cooper's Cable to give the attention it deserves. The "grass isn't always cheaper" is not a good lead in.
The only comment I heard about the vote on the survey was when the RMA President, Jack Cooper seemed to refuse to understand that majority rule is a major principle in a democracy! Rather, he only seemd to care about the minority vote and somehow in is ill fated logic believes this in the principle point they need to focus on.
The RMA BOD refuses to address this issue. They all believe, excluding Dick Cox, that "if they build it we will come". what they fail to realize is that even if they contracted to have a completely new network installed, the RMA would still drive it into the ground through poor maintenance. Additionally they would provide even less maintenance when it comes to services outside the RMA Boundaries or to non-members as they have in the past. The Country Club doesn't use RMA's service and the Villages stop using the service when RMA failed to respond to their Letter.
The RMA is in violation of our governing documents for failing to disclosed the contents of the letter from the Villages to the RMA's members! They can't keep this letter a secret. It is over a year old, the Villages stopped pressing the issue with RMA, and now have their own Cable Service. We should demand to have RMA produce this letter and post it on this website. This goes to the crux of the matter, they are incompetent in managing these services.
RMCSD is supposed to be providing oversight management as the Franchise Authority. the Sacramento Metropolitan Cable Commission turned over the oversight autority with the same rights provided to them by the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors back in the early 1990's. The RMCSD has the authority to force the RMA to comply with FCC regulations, answer the question of mandatory subscription by the RMA membership, and ensure that RMA is managing the funds properly and fairly.
So maybe we have been knocking on the wrong door and need to present these concerns to the RMCSD?
