This brought criticism both from Chris McManus, who demanded that the work session be postponed until January "when there will be new people on the board," and from attorney John Lyons, who protested that there had been no notification of the work session. McManus claimed "lots of people would be in the room if they knew this was going to happen." The barrage of objections, especially from McManus, provoked Chatham to snap, "Stop it. Stop it right now. You're really pissing me off." Later, Chatham elaborated, "I strenuously object to people saying we should not receive information."
In response to Margolis's concerns, the Planning Board passed a resolution condemning "aggressive verbal or physical behavior toward members of the Planning Board at any time." That's how it is in the "Friendly City."
