PERSONAL EXPRESSION

 

COUNCILMAN IGLIOZZI Requests the privilege of the floor to speak on a Point of Personal Expression and states:

 

          “Just a few things.  I think’s it’s pretty interesting here this evening and I think it’s actually a great learning lesson.  I will first start off with a little story.  A congressional antidote, back in the 80’s a veteran Congressman Claude Pepper was walking the capital quad with a young freshman Congressman Mr. Hayes.  They were chatting along the quad an walking and talking about federal issues and a boy scout troop showed up and said excuse me congressman can you show me the way to the Jefferson Memorial and the veteran congressman said okay, well go down this road, take a left, take a right and you should be where you need to be.  So, then as the boy scout troop left, the freshman congressman looked to the veteran congressman and said you sent him the wrong way.  They wanted to go to the Jefferson Memorial and the veteran congressman said I know.  He said they were looking for the Jefferson Memorial, but I wanted to show them the Jefferson Monument and where he sent them was to the front lawn of the Senate where at that particular time there was protests going on about government issues.  What he said was and I thought it was interesting, he said he wanted these young people to see that only in democracy on the fast of the earth, this democracy where those who wish to challenge and disagree with their government or their legislative body have the right to do so in its own front yard.  Then he added this is an extra ordinary important lesson for the young people and an important lesson for freshman congressman.  The point is this.  You may not like what Councilmembers say or have to say about an issue before this body, but every Councilman has a right to stand up and ask questions or debate the issues that are before this body.  Whether it was heard in a committee or not the public has a right to know.  It’s a republic, it’s a democracy and if you want the rules to be followed then you need also apply them fairly and equally.  If you’re going to apply a five minute rule you have to apply it to everybody, but if you’re going to try to stop debate the presiding officer of the Council’s job is to serve the body, not the body to serve the presiding officer.  Your job is to facilitate debate, discussion and democracy.  So, I will continue to fight for democracy and continue to fight for my neighborhood, for the city to have its voice on the issues before this body.  So, I want to thank you all and I want to thank Councilman Salvatore.  That’s all we needed to hear.  That’s a good thing.  He said some really positive things and Councilman Hassett also, but the public has a right to know what we’re doing with their tax dollars.  That’s what it’s about.  So, with that I ask all of you to remember the edicts of democracy and remember that this body is where debate and discussion occurs.  That’s all I ask.  It’s only fair and equal to everybody.  Thank you.”
