    I am glad Kilmartim filed an amicus brief, but his long history is patheticaly anti human being

    Could this be a more pathetic representation of how NOT to run a branch of local government. Send someone down (Lenz) to talk with a group of concerned citizens with specific questions on a valid and current issue, and make them feel unwelcome and marginalized. Don’t answer anything. Represent yourself as without any responsibility to do anything for them. And give them an enormously unhelpful roadmap of how to deal with the office in the future. Is that DEMOCRACY in the eyes of Peter Kilmartin?
