Letters to the Editor

Letter: Return to civil discussions

Is there an official published list of rules and regulations guiding attending or testifying at Assembly meetings? If there is, I can’t find one. If there isn’t, we certainly need one. It certainly should cover acceptable behavior by attendees. Rules regarding how to get approved to testify, length of testimony and acceptable language.

In order to allow testimony for all, we need police presence to insure rules are followed and if not they are removed and/or fined. Many citizens are passionate about their causes. That, however, does not allow folks to be disrespectful, rude and insensitive.

Let’s return to civil, factual discussions.
