A week ago Monday, at a council meeting at city hall, Chief Financial Officer Eric Demas was called to make testimony about something or other.
Like a good soldier, Demas appeared.
For many of us watching the live proceedings on ECTV, we were shocked when Demas tried to speak.
He came wearing a mask. He took off the mask to speak.
He appeared to be fighting a very bad cold.
He was sneezing, coughing, sniffling, wheezing, and in general, he never should have appeared at that meeting.
In fact, we were quite surprised not one councilor made a mention that Demas should have stayed home and taken care of himself.
