To the editor of THE EAGLE:

We were thoroughly disgusted with Councilman Barry Clairmont’s prosecutorial tone in his questioning of Pittsfield City Solicitor Kathleen Degnan during the council meeting this past Tuesday. Ms Degnan is an employee of the city, not a criminal.

Although he was within his rights to disagree with her, she still should have been treated with dignity and respect. This inquisition should never have been allowed to continue as long as it did!
