At an event at Spooky Nook complex this afternoon, a resident asked us why we were not at last night’s committee meeting. The resident was disappointed that we were working, but told us it was explosive.
Explosive because a borough employee called a citizen the “R-WORD” and abruptly left the meeting.
You can read Columbia Spy‘s reporting of the meeting.
While the nation’s chief executive uses the R-WORD with impunity, a Columbia borough employee ought to know better than to berate anyone by using the R-WORD.
Columbia Borough residents, visitors, employees, the scorned citizen and everyone are due a public apology for this unacceptable response.
