• At the beginning of every Town meeting, at both (government) meetings, the instructions, for lack of a better word, for proper etiquette and content during the meeting is read — which includes, and I’m paraphrasing, “no loud or rude outburst or behavior.”

(During) the last three (government) meetings, a woman has decided that she had the right to be loud, rude and disruptive. And when she was asked politely to be quiet and settle down, she became even more agitated.

At this last (Town government) meeting, it was appalling to what degree her outburst reached. If you’re going to attend one of the Town meetings, bring your manners with you.
