Selectmen were rude, combative & disrespectful to county visitors

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I was at the Dec. 16th Gilmanton selectmen's meeting when the Belknap County commissioner came to speak about the county budget. The selectmen were rude, combative and disrespectful when asking the commissioner questions concerning the county budget. The commissioner gave his time to come to our town so we could better understand our county budget. I was embarrassed listening to our elected officials treating the commissioner in this manner.

One Selectman didn't even have the common courtesy to remove his cap.
