County commissioners.......

Pierre A. Goria II's letter to the editor wasn't posted on the N&R's Web site this morning, so you'll have to settle for my summary.

Goria writes: "I was shocked to see Guilford County Commissioner Bob Landreth receive the Commissioner of the Year Award. At a recent meeting, I observed Landreth flippantly listening to caring Guilford County residents voice their concerns on how money should be spent in the public school system......He even turned his body sideways, again giving the impression he was not interested in citizens' opinions."

I've written many times in this space about the lack of respect on the part of the county commissioners (with the exception of the four female commissioners) shown speakers from the floor. This needs to be a campaign issue: Candidates need to be asked, "Will you sit still at meetings and listen to public speakers?"
