Yesterday, I went to the town hall meeting hosted by our state senator Ron Grooms. Five of our town councilmen were there. A person in attendance greeted all five councilmen, and shook hands with four of them.
But why did he not shake hands with all five councilmen, you may ask?
Because the fifth councilman shook his head 'no' and refused to shake the attendee's hand, that's why. I mentioned the incident to another person in attendance, and he said that he had witnessed the incident. He called it one of the most blatant displays of arrogance he had seen in a long time.
Ya know, I get it. The councilman apparently dislikes the attendee. It seemed to be an intentional snub, meant to insult the attendee.
Is this kind of arrogance and disrespect the type of behavior you want from one of your elected officials?
Is it acceptable for one of your elected officials to show such uncivil and rude behavior to a constituent in a public gathering?
