A reader pointed out something I didn’t see: Renner saw Brexton in the audience and made sure he got a comment card and was able to speak. Other people have not been allowed to speak if they didn’t show up in time to fill out a card! Renner even had the Council vote to allow all 8 people. Rules only matter to peons! Not in Our Town bullying must not apply to Renner!

Recapping last night’s Council meeting is going to take more than one post, stay tuned for more!
Public comment was intense with citizens after citizen telling the Council to spend on essential services and not on WANTS. More on their comments later.
One guy was out of step with the others. He came specifically to attack Judy Stearns. It was pretty easy to find out who he is – just Google the name: Brexton Issacs.
- Brexton is a Wesleyan student
- Brexton got elected to the 2013-14 National Executive Board of College Democrats as National Council Vice Chair. See info here: https://www.iwu.edu/news/2013/08-isaacs-named-college-democrats-exec.html
- Brexton is majoring in Political Science and he worked for Renner’s election as mayor http://collegedems.com/about/officers/communications-director/
Tari just happens to be a professor of Political Science at Wesleyan. He also never fails to gloat about being a Democrat. It’s not a stretch to say Tari and Brexton know each other.
Stearns was on City 92.9 after the officers racist comments were made public. She wants to know who at the City knew about the incident and who buried it. She was appalled the information was only public because of a trial. She did question whether signing a card accomplishes anything. Listen to her comments here:
Below is the Not In Our Town pledge Card. Signers are now speech police since they are told to challenge words. Who decides what words damage? Is everybody held accountable or just people with differing views? What happened to the 1st Amendment? I’d rather hear speech, even speech I don’t agree with. It’s makes judging people on the content of their character much easier.
Brexton Isaacs comments start at 18:25. Did he even hear what Stearns said? I thought the Not In Our Town card opposes bullying!
