Councilman Dave Weaver stormed out of City Council chambers Tuesday night after rebuking a resident for making what he considered to be “snide comments” — the fifth time in less than 10 months he's left early, mostly during the public comment portion of the meeting.
In times past, Weaver has exited quietly out a side door as public speakers share their thoughts on city government, but this time there was finger-pointing and yelling.
The impetus: Margaret Hammond — a resident who frequently addresses the council on quality-of-life issues — implied he wasn't paying attention while she complained about bulky trash items clogging the sidewalks.
“Oh, Mr. Weaver, you look at the sky again; you look cute,” she said.
“Don't start making snide comments at me,” Weaver snapped back, calling on Mayor Frank Quintero to prevent Hammond from making personal comments about him.
After Weaver and Hammond yelled at each other, Weaver stormed out, shouting “No decorum!”
