A fool does not delight in understanding, but only in revealing his own mind.
During tonight’s candidate forum Mayoral Candidate Short stated that the city needs to start listening to the people and stop preventing them from being heard! Of course, he gave no examples of how the voices of the people have been muted and offered no alternatives to improving communication.
Yet during the “Citizen Comments” portion of our last City Council meeting, Mr. Short pointed his finger and screamed at the Council, demanding answers to his questions. However, as I began to answer the very questions he had been asking, Mr. Short got up out of his seat and walked outside the glass doors of the council chambers where he, Gary Moody & Steve Hatfield gathered together to yuck it up.
Mr. Short has never once reached out to me or any other member of the council to gain understanding. It’s also clear that he’s never read the historical minutes of meetings which would at the very least provide him with points of fact on which any thoughtful leader would you use to build his campaign. This is why there is so little substance to his rhetoric.
