16 LETTER TO THE EDITOR OCTOBER 11-17, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH SMITHFIELD BLACKSTONE WOONSOCKET Beauregard was reasonable throughout Nike bill, repeal I attended a Sept. 11 North Smithfield Town Council meeting presided over by Council President John Beauregard, who was propos- ing that North Smithfield refrain from purchasing Nike gear. Everyone that spoke was against his proposal, except for two hate-filled rants, one of them at the podium. The com- ment from the podium was driven by bias and hate; the person screamed the loudest, was the angriest, and wasn't from North Smithfield. But I believe their comments were moti- vated by desire for monetary gain. I don't know Mr. Bauregard. However, I made assumptions about him when I learned of his proposal. Mr. Bauregard ran the meeting, opened it to comments, read a state- ment and then took a vote on the proposal, which passed. I had decid- ed not to vote for Mr. Beauregard if he ran again. I held no animosity against him, I just didn't approve of this becoming a town matter. But I know that the best protection from making mistakes is to continu- ally search out truths. So I listened that evening. I discovered that Mr. Beauregard is fair; he gave everyone a chance to express their feelings. He limited comments to two minutes, but never cut anyone off. John then read his prepared statement, which revealed much. John is fair minded, professional, and polite. The man, who I thought was biased, prejudiced, and maybe even a little hateful, revealed that he is the complete opposite. He was never driven by hate. He doesn't have a dislike for Kaepernick because he is black; he would feel exactly the same if Kaepernick was white. John loves his fellow police officers.
