Brighton resident Mordechai Rennert was surprised to hear that a Brighton town official made an off-hand remark about him after he asked questions during a recent Town Board meeting.
Once Rennert left the podium, Town Clerk Susan Kramarsky leaned towards former Brighton Police Chief Thomas Voelkl and whispered, "Can you shoot him? I'll take responsibility." Voelkl did not respond, and Kramarsky has since deemed her comment inappropriate.
The comment was not audible to those in the room on June 23, but those watching it on Brighton cable access were able to hear it clearly, as Kramarsky's microphone was on.
