As I read the commentary by Ken Murphy in the Nov. 20 issue of the Payson Roundup, I wonder why he is so upset or making such a fuss about changing the public comments to the end of the council meeting. He says they don't want to hear them, but if I'm not mistaken, no matter where the comments are made in the meeting, the council members are still going to be there to hear them. Freedom of speech has not been suppressed here. It is the right of the council members to make changes if they so desire.
No matter what the council's personal agenda is for making this change, it does not change the right to voice your opinion at the meetings.
Ken, I have known and respected you for many years, but I wonder why you came across so forcefully in this comment. What personal agenda do you have? Running for mayor maybe?
