Dear Editor,

At the March 17th public meeting on the Bishop Public Lands Initiative, I was appalled by the rude, disruptive behavior of those who lashed out with hatred, fear and disrespect at some of our hard-working county council members and at fellow citizens they labeled “outsiders.”

They made a lot of noise, but offered little of substance, succeeding only in making a public display of their own meanness. They do not speak for the majority of our community! Bullying has no place in a public hearing.
