Well, what another fine evening of listening to our esteemed Mayor yell at the Council members. If it was any more hostile, Chief Harl wouldn't be the only guy in the room with a gun.
I am sad to say that my disappointment in Mayor Garner grows more every time I hear him speak. How does he justify building swimming pools and giving out raises while he dismantles the city's sanitation department? The YMCA could still happen, but not the pools if we can't maintain our sanitation department.
He talks in circles, insists on pushing things through before all information is known, and reacts like a spoiled child when questioned about alternatives to his plans.
I believe that anyone in such a position should be bit more professional about things, and should be able to keep a level head and controlled temper when confronted on the issues. There is no professionalism when it comes to Garners time at the podium.
To add insult to injury, as he passed the gentleman seated in front of me, he leaned over and made a smirking grunt, as if to imply "see, I got the best of them, and you will never win this one". I about fell out of my seat. I don't know who the gentleman was, but he was adult enough to ignore the cheap shot.
Anyway, I'm way too tired tonight to go into all that occured, and I had to leave before the thing was finished.
So, I will get the details on the remainder of the evening, and put them together with my thoughts about the first portion of the night, and will post again on Saturday.
Meanwhile, everyone feel free to comment about your thoughts on how this evening went.
