I have waited for someone to speak out about this. It is past time to say “enough!”
During the Public Comment section of the City Council meeting, a speaker has consistently spoken negatively and abusively to the council members.
City Council members are staff of the City of Pacifica. Staff have the right to work free of verbal and physical abuse from the public. Regardless of the situation, no one has a right to abuse any city worker, and that includes City Council members during public meetings.
In addition, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that the financial woes of the City of Pacifica are not the doing of the City Council members. Cities everywhere in the state of California are suffering financially. Our City Council members are trying consistently to improve the lot of the city, despite the expressed opinions of the abusive speaker.
I am tired of listening to the energy-sucking, unhelpful remarks of this person. Since public censure is nowhere in sight, I would like someone to evict him from the meeting next time he makes an abusive remark.
