Telecom Board live broadcast canceled to make way for Quorum Court meeting, but viewer says Quorum Court broadcast not completed

Marcie, that is truly strange. I can't explain it. When I opened the Telecom Board I asked why we didn't have the monitor as usual to see a delayed view of whoever was speaking. The Govt. Channel manager said that the quorum court was being shown live BECAUSE it is a govt. entity.
When I got home, I found online that the Telecom Board was still shown on Granicus as being shown at that time. I understood the importance of the quorum court and accepted the explanation. Has the quorum court always been on the third Thursday? I often watch the Quorum Court but have attended very few times.
Where was it advertised that the quorum court was to be shown tonight? I missed that. 
Thanks for sharing with me and I'll find out whatever I can.
Odd that the normal Telecom Board was NOT shown but the quorum court wasn't either.
Please keep in touch,
Aubrey James Shepherd

Subject: Washington County Quorum Court Meeting

I was very disappointed tonight to see that the monthly Washington County Quorum Court Meeting was not televised even though it was advertised as being available.  The first few minutes were on with audio only and then the audio dropped off and there was only your scrolling gallery of upcoming programs. 

Is there not someone from the Government Channel on hand to see that these programs go forward as scheduled?  Will it be replayed at another time?

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
