|Holy Cow!! Mayor Stops Meeting to Ask a Local Citizen to "Step Outside" and Mayhem Ensues!!|
Dateline HMB, September 15, 2015:
Approximately an hour and 15 minutes into tonight's City Council meeting George Muteff spoke at Public Comment. Towards the end of the comment he mentioned that it would be nice if someone would address what had happened to our City Clerk. (Ms Smith had been given an award for Transparency in Government by AFOG a few minutes earlier.)
After sitting down, and after approximately a minute, Farmer John made a gesture at Mayor Fraser while muttering under his breath and the Mayor called an impromptu break- which no one even realized until everyone was looking at her as she was striding across the floor- at which point she let everyone know we were on break.
She can be seen and heard on the video bending down and asking George to step outside so she could have a word with him. They step out the kitchen exit and as they depart people joke about George being in trouble with the mayor!!
A minute or so goes by, raised voices are heard, and then as Muteff re-enters the room the Mayor can be heard shouting "You are a weak man!!". Muteff gets to his seat, (once again on camera) turns, and offers that "the Mayor just put her hands on me, and I'm thinking about filing a report." Muller runs over and directs the Sheriff Lt. to get them apart- except Muteff is leaving, and there is no one to separate.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that Muteff tried to leave the conversation and the Mayor grabbed him by the arm- pulling him back and spinning him around in an attempt to prevent him from leaving.
To summarize: It appears from eyewitness accounts and the available video that the Mayor literally stopped a City Council meeting so that she could go Mr. Muteff looking for a confrontation. Suffice it to say that she got one.
The video is a must see:
