At the 5 November Lexington Town Council meeting, Mayor Steve MacDougall, strictly abiding by a agenda HE controlled, refused to allow a citizen to speak. Mrs. Elizabeth Monts Rauch, an icon in the Town and County of Lexington, wanted to address a conflict about the Town and it’s attempt to acquire family property via eminent domain. Mrs. Rauch gave Lake and Main her statement. It appears below.
(UPDATE: In a comment, Ms. Rauch states: “I was up before the gavel fell and was adjourned. I was told that I was on the agenda but that was false too. Citizens have always had the right to speak. Must be a new ruling against Roberts Rules if Order.”)
