We apologize for poor and variable audio quality due to a number of technical issues in the auditorium’s sound system. Members of the audience commented on difficulties in hearing the speakers several times during the event. The condition of the PA system speaks to some degree about the difficult financial circumstances that the Cobre and Silver schools are faced with but poor audio quality in most government, public and private facilities in Grant County speaks further about the importance that these facilities owners and operators place on intelligible communication to their constituents and audiences and the priority that they place upon correcting longstanding and/or recurring problems. Not least of these difficulties is the human factor and lack of training and familiarity with PA systems, microphones, etc. Transparency and Accountability are inhibited when public officials cannot be heard or understood.
