If last Tuesday’s City Council meeting was any indication of what the future holds, it promises to be a long four years with ol’ “Buckle up” Burnette wielding the gavel.
When it was Ted Noftall’s turn at the podium Mayor Burnette was clearly not happy to call his name and was just as clearly not going to allow Ted a few seconds over his allotted three minutes to finish his comments at the end. Way to go Don. Where graciousness and civility would have cost you nothing and benefited you greatly, you chose pettiness and rudeness instead. Ted said it best in his remarks–you only get one chance to make a good first impression and your first impression as Mayor was less than stellar.
