LETTER: Reader: Council actions make Sorrento laughing stock

In reference to the childish behavior that took place at the Sorrento council meeting last week I just want to let the council members involved know that once again Sorrento has become the laughing stock of Ascension Parish.

I don’t think it is too much for the residents of Sorrento to expect our town council to conduct themselves in a professional manner when representing the town, especially with news camera’s present.

Just because three council members happen to be in the same place at the same time does not constitute a conspiracy.  It’s just another case of people putting their nose where it doesn’t belong.

In this town most everyone is related, went to school together and basically knows almost everyone who lives here, so it’s not uncommon for several council members to be in one place at the same time.

On the other hand, these councilmen brought more suspicion to themselves with their reaction. Mr. Braud was well within his rights to bring the matter of the meeting to the council and mayor’s attention.

If all of our council members would put as much energy into improving Sorrento as they put into this embarrassing performance the town would reap the benefits.
