2 The Glenvflle Democrat/Pathfinder September 17, 1976 Bury the hatchet Citizens of Glenville might have been surprised if they had heard the sharp words that were exchanged between Councilmen Clark Wolfe and John Jamison and Mayor Delbert Davidson during the Sept. 7 city council meeting. Elected officials have a right and a duty to question each other, but unnecessary baiting and arguing that's designed to provoke confrontation are best left outside the meeting room. So rough time was spent on attack and counter-attack at the last meeting, that other councilmen had to rush the remaining business in order for the meeting to end at a decent hour. Both sides have admitted that hard feelings arose after the mayor cast a tie-brealdng vote on a motion last spring. The issue should have died at that time. The bickering detracts from what should be a thoughtful and constr#ctive governmental process. We say bury the hatchet and get on with the city's business.
