Say it ain't so, Regina

By Scott Tibbs, April 22, 2005

An acquaintance who attended Al Sharpton's speech last night said she was sitting behind Bloomington City Clerk Regina Moore. When the Union Board cut off the time for questions, Mrs. Moore allegedly said something along the lines of "thank God they cut off questions before Scott Tibbs got to speak."

I hope that my acquaintance heard Mrs. Moore wrong, or that someone else said those words and that and my friend mistakenly thought it was Mrs. Moore. I would hope that someone elected citywide would have respect for the free speech rights of all citizens that she serves, and would not express relief that I was unable to speak in a public forum.
