Public portion of council meeting

It"s surprising no one has recalled Mr. Glenn's many appearances, as a citizen, before previous councils.  His moments of veiled sarcasm are hard to forget.

It's strange, that after 127 years, the public portion  of the meetings has been redefined.  What does council fear? It will be ironic when, on Memorial Day, the mayor will speak of respect and appreciation for the sacrifices made to protect our freedoms, while having colluded to dampen the rights of the borough"s…
