Phoenix woman can’t cartwheel at meetings

PHOENIX — A Phoenix woman will have to keep both feet on the ground if she wants to speak at any public meetings.
Sixty-five-year-old Dianne Barker told KSAZ-TV this week that she’s been barred from doing cartwheels at meetings held by the Maricopa Association of Governments.
An attorney for the association that oversees regional transportation projects said in a letter to Barker last month that she must “immediately cease performing cartwheels.”
Agency spokeswoman Kelly Taft told The Associated Press that Barker’s cartwheels are disruptive and a public safety liability.
Barker said she will obey the association’s request. She was a cheerleader in college and said the cartwheels are a way for her to show her passion.
Taft said the association appreciates Barker’s enthusiasm, but she should show it verbally.
