Well, your statement of what happened wasn't exactly accurate. I to was there, and was sitting next to Steve Hill. There was no booing, or heckling, we did speak amongst ourselves, but that was it.
When the anti-smoking lobbyist was speaking, there was no booing. When Mr. Mackinnon spoke, he directly called her out as an outside agitator. People cheered for Mackinnon's statement. Nobody booed. I was there, and I watched the video to double check. I remember the Mayor stating that people were, but can't hear any booing throughout the meeting. Steve nor did any of us sneer at the mayor when he asked everyone to be respectful. We just weren't sure about the booing that he was talking about, and he was looking directly at us. There was no booing that I heard, nor that I could hear on the recording.
And as far as us hanging out in the parking lot like "thugs". We do that every meeting. Some of us know each other, and we talk out in the parking lot. If anybodies walking or trying to back out, we obviously move without any bad looks or anything of that nature. Have you seen most of us? There's nothing thuggish about us.
I have no reason why you posted this on here, or why you actually e-mailed the County Chairman.
