Bleacher seating was uncomfortable.

Those of us that were seniors were expected to clamber up into places that are only suitable for young people.

Dear Editor:

The town hall meeting on Monday night was held in a school gymnasium.

I was shocked when we arrived to find that we had to sit in the bleachers. There is no place for your back and very little for your butt to sit on and those seats were hard!

Those of us that were seniors were expected to clamber up into places that are only suitable for young people.

The councillors were very comfortable in their plush chairs.

I finally had to resort to hollering at the mayor to give us a break so we could stand up and stretch our legs and butts.

I am not alone when I say that the seating for the taxpayers was outrageous.

At the halfway break many people left, they were very upset with the conditions.

Whoever was responsible for setting up that location should have sat up there in the bleachers with the rest of us.

If you hold the next meeting with the same conditions many of us will not come.

Dave Simpson
