Following a public debate that resonated in uncivil terms–with audience members booing speakers and lobbing allegations against a seated council member–City Manager Bob Brown called for an end to personal attacks that have included death threats against him.
“I have personally had my life threatened, and my family’s well-being has been threatened during this time. My personal vehicle has been broken into and its seat belts slashed, solely because of my job. Many slanderous signs and social media postings–which are false–have been published. No one should be subjected to this type of abuse,” Brown said.
