TARBORO — To the Editor:

Monday night at the Town Council meeting (Aug. 12, 2013), I witnessed some the most disruptive,vitriolic and asinine behavior that I’ve ever seen, in the person of (Ward 8) councilman Garland Shepheard.  For several months, his behavior has grown progressively worse and it seems to embolden him to waste my time, the time of the other council members and the time of other citizens who care enough about Tarboro to attend council meetings.

At times, his behavior borders on harassment of several of our town staffers to the point of publicly chastising individuals.

Monday night, I was sick to my stomach.  Now, I am sick- and- tired of these antics.

I care enough to work with others, including the Tarboro town staffers to improve this town.  I suggest Mr. Shepheard do the same and cease his crusade!
