    Residents should be welcome in city hall

    Topic: A Fortified City Hall

    Points For Consideration

    • City Hall: “The Heart of the City”: Community access permitted at all times

    • Required statement of purpose sends the message: “Government not open.”

    • “Hallowed Hall or Masked Mausoleum”

    • “The righteous are as bold as a lion but the wicked flee when no one is chasing them.”

    • City employees’ bewilderment at entry restrictions even for them.

    • Visitors given third-degree when desiring entrance into the historic, (1856) city hall building.

    • Having obtained entrance and approaching a closed door, I was met with a look from an employee like a deer in the headlights; stunned and speechless. The reception was along the lines of, “how did you get in here and what do you want?” Rather than good morning, how may I help you? This occurred twice with the same employee!

    • Not a welcoming atmosphere, but one of intrusion

    • Is this a place of public service or solitary confinement?

    • Even most STATE CAPITOLS are not that inaccessible

    • Why is it in lockdown? And who is pulling the strings?

    • #askingforafriend!
