Last night, TUE 05 AUG 2014, Mr. Burnette, called for Mr. Noftall’s immediate, public disembowelment. Sentencing Mr. Noftall without any due process. As was the custom during during the Dark Ages and Inquisition.
Mr. Burnette was shockingly out of order. It was magnified on PogTV.
Frankly, it has a negative, chilling effect, sending a most negative message to citizens who may want to express opinions.
A warning to:
- citizen participation
- citizen boards
- city employees and managers
- and more …
In addition, Mr. Burnette’s action only amplified some of the findings of the JULY 2013 study by Auburn University, on the CoPO Organizational Climate Survey.
Agree or disagree with Mr. Noftall, Mr. Burnette’s action was over the top. Again, sending a very strong message to those who might not agree with him or City Council, that public disembowelment will be one’s outcome.
Mr. Burnette should consider a public apology to all citizens and assure he will not abuse citizens trying to participate.
If not Mr. Burnette, the Council should assure citizens of the same.
