Dimmock told Benson he was tired of being “ganged up on” during meetings.
Benson and Wetherbee then got up to leave, with Dimmock hurling a few more comments in Benson’s direction.
“You’re not the man you think you are,” Dimmock said.
Benson responded with one last statement before leaving the room.
“That’s a real, educated, mature statement, Al,” he said.
Council Chairman Michael Fairbanks tried to restore order and civility. The remaining councilors then officially adjourned the meeting.
