    Mr. Rhynes has been consistly disruptive at the library’s board meetings and can’t seem to understand that touching other people without their consent is innapropriate. If he squeezes my arms again and keeps calling me “baby” I’m going to ask him to leave the meeting in the future. I’m not going to continue to tolerate his intimidating and sexist behavior.

    I will post another response soon to the Library Director soon. But for now; let the first few minutes suffice for now!
