MikeK: Stunned By Caustic Remarks

Councilman Mike Kennedy: But Susie Snedaker prompted this commentary by calling the council out publicly from the dias as though we weren’t paying attention because some were taking notes. I was rather stunned at Susie’s caustic approach, even though I’ve come to expect Susie to be caustic. Mary Souza is right that I stopped taking notes during Susie’s remarks after she said what she said. I had actually thought that Susie had an interesting idea regarding traffic flow (albeit one that has been discussed by staff before), but after she was so pointedly rude in her comments, I Iost interest in what she was saying and simply waited silently for her to complete her statements. (Full comments by Mike Kennedy and Deanna Goodlander here.)

Question: How much rudeness from the audience should an elected official be expected to put up with?
