After the hearing, Chumash Tribal Chairman Vincent Armenta said he will accept the county's invitation to participate in the ad hoc subcommittee talks.
"I will accept the invitation because I believe it's a good thing, I believe there are a lot of common interests that the Tribe and the County have", Chairman Armenta said, "so I believe if handled properly we can really achieve some great things."
said making the talks open to the public under the Brown Act is a mistake.
"It is obviously set up to fail", Armenta
said, "I believe that was their intention, it was very clear from the beginning and they know that."
