Column: Unguarded comments fly at Ontario council meeting

All I wanted was a short item, honest, to top off an items column. So I attended Tuesday’s Ontario City Council meeting, in hopes of something happening. My reward was the spectacle of a feisty Ontario-Montclair School Board member speaking during public comment, and four council members firing back. It was among the more ridiculous, but entertaining, meetings I can remember attending.

Instead of a short item, I got an entire column, which you can read here. (Items will run Sunday instead.)

    That’s not the way its supposed to go. The Council should sit quietly while the commenter talks. Then the commenter is to sit down. The Mayor/Council might ask staff to look into the situation and tell the commenter they will get back with the findings and/or solutions.

    A nice way for the mayor to act to a community member just before an election where he’s trying to move up the ladder (and out of the city).
