Letter: Council visit

June 3, 2014 

I am an 18-year-old student at Richland High School. That being said, I don't attend many city council meetings. I did, however, choose to attend the meeting held at 4 p.m. on Monday, May 12. My experience was less than satisfactory.

Throughout the duration of my one-hour stay, the council spent more than half of it bickering about the subject of some budget that might as well have been esoteric. One member in particular vexed me to the point that I just had to leave. I certainly hope my experience will be better in the future.
