Joe Appleton opts to resign when three colleagues attend meeting wearing shorts
ASOTIN — An Asotin city councilor resigned Tuesday night over a lack of pants at a public meeting.
Joe Appleton, who served more than 10 years on the council, said he objected to three of his fellow councilors wearing shorts to a city council meeting. The casual attire violates Robert’s Rules of Orders, he said.
“Some of those guys showed up in dumpster-diving outfits, and it bothered me,” Appleton told the Tribune. “We have rules for a reason, but none of that seems to matter anymore.” . . .
