Letter: Conner censure ‘not our city’s finest hour’

There seems to be a consensus that the antics of JoAnn Conner have tested the mettle of some past and present city council members along with the reigning city manager.

The mayor’s idea to publicly shame Council Member Conner through censure left many residents (even those who fully believe that JoAnn has demonstrated some unorthodox behavior) with a bad taste in their mouths. I’m one of those that left the three-and-a-half hour proceeding thinking our city had made a mistake. Public shaming yields no winners and often serves to make the accusers (the city manager and the mayor) look flawed.

This was not our city’s finest hour.
