Hackworth's runaway meeting



DUNEDIN -- Mayor Bob Hackworth, who's running as a Democrat for the Congressional District 10 seat now held by U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, had his hands full at a city commission meeting Thursday night.

From the Times story:

Decorum and Robert's Rules of Order flew out the window as commissioners talked to each other across the mayor. One commissioner repeatedly argued with the developers who were sitting in the audience. One developer demanded answers from the city, often from his seat.

Though the mayor tried, he couldn't stop the runaway meeting, slumping down in his seat at one point in obvious frustration.
