City's actions are embarrassing

To the editor:

I don't recall ever being so embarrassed reading a local news item as I was by the article about Petry and Brocato shaming Calder for painting dots on the sidewalk (July 25 edition). The only named intention in the section of ordinance cited is in regards to restricting or prohibiting parking. Especially with questions about the clarity of the ordinance, the mean spiritedness in this is so obvious that I am ashamed for the complaining retailers, mayor and city manager.

Mayor Petry's words in particular are so attacking — it is embarrassing. It is mighty hard not to see any of this associated with some personal or political agenda. It seems to me (and as has been said in various contexts before) there are problems and projects far more worthy for our elected officials and city staff to be addressing instead of shaming a fellow retailer and public servant for her creative polka-dot marketing during a fun city event.
