I don’t know about any of you, but I was OUTRAGED at the way Mayor Mussallem spoke to and belittled Mrs. Martin who was there representing the recycling centre during the council meeting last night.
His tone of voice and the way he rudely said “No you may NOT!!!” after she asked to interrupt when he began going on a long tangent, was ridiculous and uncalled for.
I found it very rude, disrespectful and his explanation ridiculous (that the city is out 9 million, so lets cut recycling hours to save 23,000…GMAFB…surely he must see how ridiculous that argument is 23,000 is not even a drop in the bucket…)
You could tell after Mussallem was done his “speech” that Martin and the rest of the group (even some councillors seemed a little uncomfortable) were not impressed with being spoken to the way they were.
Mussallem came off to me as big bully know-it-all last night and I just couldn’t believe the level of disrespect that he showed a long upstanding citizen such as Mrs. Martin. His responses to a lot of those who spoke last night came off as just generally uncaring, and his demeanour during the entire night was entitled and crass.
When are the citizens of PR going to stop electing fools like this to city government?
