We received a grant for a land-use study for a specified district in our City. We've been working with the State on the grant and have put together a Steering Committee comprised of local business owners, interested parties, residents etc. One of the Steering Committee members lives in the district, owns a business in the district and is also a Planning Commission member.
This morning I arrived at work to a hostile e-mail from said Member as to why this study is a complete waste of time and money and nothing is ever going to come of it anyway.
Now the Chairmain of the Steering Committee is asking for the SC/PC member's resignation from the Steering Committee.
Any advice on how to handle the situation?
