My thanks and praise to the Rockland City Council, especially to Mayor Will Clayton, for the open and efficient meeting I attended Monday, March 6. Important and sensitive issues were discussed and all points of view were encouraged and heard in an open and respectful atmosphere, all with the betterment of the community in mind. This is truly what democracy looks like. I was proud to be there, and very happy to be a resident of Rockland.
