To-Can Nguyen, who speaks at virtually every council meeting and regularly makes inflammatory comments, tonight pushed another audience member over the edge. Nguyen referred to City Manager Kurt Wilson three times as “black city manager” Kurt Wilson.
Cynthia Gail Boyd called Nguyen out on it after the second instance and again after the third, at which point the elderly Nguyen finally left the room (as did Boyd). Nguyen, who is in her 80s, regularly refers to people she is critical of by their ethnicity during her remarks. She also often refers to them as “criminals.”
