Talking animation draws Attention to MATH meeting

MIDDLETOWN – A talking animation, called an avatar, is being used to draw attention to an upcoming meeting of the Middletown Area Town Hall (MATH) meeting.

This avatar is being used to help draw a good crowd for the upcoming MATH meeting on Thursday, Feb. 21, because this meeting is important.


The agenda includes an explanation of the Brown Act by County Counsel Anita Grant and how that relates to changes in MATH's bylaws. There are procedural questions that need to be resolved.

Langtry Estates will make a presentation regarding its use permit for a golf course on its property.

There also will be a special presentation on "Tools and Strategies to Move MATH Forward."

It is important to connect this community with resources who can assist them. Consequently, special guests have been invited to attend this meeting – including young people who helped draw Fox News to Middletown back in 2006 for the Middletown Days Festival and garnered the interest of KRON 4 TV's "Bay Area Backroads" in 2007.

Kevin Comora, president of Vizicast Multimedia, who introduced the Middletown Merchants to the wonders of digital signage last September is also expected to attend, among others.


These town hall meetings are always free and open to the general public. They are held in the Multi-Use Room of the Middletown High School, off Highway 29 in downtown Middletown at 7 p.m.

While there is no requirement that people RSVP, special handouts are going to be given out at the Feb. 21st meeting. It would be nice to have a count as to how many people plan to show up so as not to run short on handout material. Plus, you might enjoy seeing what the online avatar has to say.

Therefore, you are invited to RSVP by going to and following the instructions.
