Auburn Council Clothing Conflict 

Auburn’s mayor-elect describes the councilors who attend their meetings as if they just walked out of a barn. Gleason says that some of the council members come to their meetings in shorts and jeans, setting a poor example for the public. He is not asking for members to come to meetings in jackets and ties, but to present themselves better.Councilor Dan Herrick says clothes don’t make the man. Herrick says he’s never come to a meeting without taking a shower. As he put it, “Believe it or not, I have hot water, too. I even have floors in my home.”
