Letter to the Editor - Civic engagement should be encouraged, not insulted

Letter to the Editor

A reference was made to "people who watch council meetings have nothing better to do."

That comment was from Peter Courtney at the Feb. 12th council meeting.  He's directly insulted every single person in the gallery and every single person watching from home via Livestream, including me. 

You may recall that transparency was promised during the last election -  would he prefer council meetings to be totally in-camera?  People who attend or watch from home truly care about our town, and have every right to monitor council meetings.  Civic engagement should be encouraged, not insulted.

As should manners.
