Sophomoric behavior

On Tuesday, a group of us attended a City Council work session. Tony Hershey, a councilmember, talked continually, passed notes and literally turned his back on the speakers as they were presenting their petition.

I do not like to call attention to an individual on the council, as they are not well paid and the job is difficult, but if this level of rudeness and sophomoric behavior of a public servant is the norm, the public should be made aware.

Beyond a totally closed mind was the incredible disrespect. Is this what you, the voters, want to represent you?
