Norman Dorn - Stop Embarrassing Edgefield County
A Column by the Editor
web posted December 6, 2012
COLUMN – It was fortunate that the
December County Council meeting was not well attended due to District 1
County Councilman Norman's repeated performances of stupidity while
hurling insults to fellow council members and members of the voting
public. It was unfortunate that Dorn had to do his best to disrupt a
meeting that was set to honor his fellow Democrat on the council,
Willie Bright, for his 22 years of service. Obviously Dorn does not
know anything about respect.
So, I will take Norman Dorn's approach in discussing his uselessness as
a member of the county council. No respect, however; in this case Dorn
has not earned nor deserves any respect to start with.
In my opinion, Norman Dorn is nothing but a loud mouthed bigot with the
IQ of a rusty
nail. He is an embarrassment to this county year after year. That hurts
our county when business leaders attend council meetings, such as
Bondex who is making a $6.4 million investment in the county and adding
new jobs, to hear ignorant Norman Dorn rant and rave against the vote
for a fee agreement (more revenue for the county) because of the
defunct Northside Park.
Dorn stated early on that his rants were going to be pervasive in all
coming meetings, and most will be based on the Northside Park or
directed at the three white members of the county council. Of course,
they are racist, not him.
Even a simple Resolution thanking Ambassador Cooper and his wife for
their contribution of four acres of land to the county had to be
hi-jacked by Dorn. I would have been embarrassed even more if they had
been present at the meeting if that was possible.
However, in spite of Dorn's outrageous behavior; it is the
responsibility of the Chairman to maintain order in the meeting. That
responsibility lies squarely on the back of Dean Campbell. He has the
gavel and never uses it. I give him credit for finally getting tired
enough of Dorn Tuesday night to shut him down telling him no one wanted
to hear his ranting. Three times is a charm I suppose.
Councilman Rodney Ashcraft had to practically force Chairman Campbell
to act on his repeated parliamentary call for a point of order in
Dorn's first wild ranting early on in the meeting.
Chairman Campbell needs to understand he is dealing with someone who
has the mentality of a 4-year-old. A child, and when that child is
unruly he needs to be corrected and, if necessary, punished. If Dorn
needs to be removed from the meeting for disorderly conduct and
disrupting the proceedings, so be it.
