Letter: Double standard for City Council members?
I attended the City Council meeting on Jan. 16, but I waited to see how the Salisbury Post was going to report on what went on at the meeting. I must say I am glad I waited, because after reading what was reported, it was certainly different from the time that Mr. Kenny Hardin was on Council.
The hypocrisy in the article and the immature actions of Mr. Brian Miller show what is wrong with the city and how the Post reports on things. Former Councilman Hardin was referred to as being a disruption and failing to work as a part of a team simply because he had the courage and insight to ask questions. He tried to fight for those who elected him and not just go along with the majority. He was often on the losing end of the votes, but he never responded like Mr. Miller did in a childish manner, even when he was faced with discourteous and disrespectful behavior from his colleagues. In spite of the unwarranted criticism, for two years he continued to ask relevant questions and seek clarity on behalf of citizens regarding operations and procedures.
After only one month into the new council, Mr. Miller did not get his way and childishly shared how he is frustrated and declared he does not care because he is not running for re-election. Why is there a different standard for him in your reporting?
Is seems that hypocrisy runs long and deep. Anybody curious as to why?
