I only do cartwheels when meetings are over.
Woman banned from cartwheeling at meetings
PHOENIX -- Dianne "DD" Barker is fighting for her rights — specifically, the right to perform cartwheels at public meetings.
The Phoenix resident has received a letter from an attorney for the Maricopa Association of Governments demanding that she "immediately cease performing cartwheels at MAG meetings."
She has been known to show off her gymnastic skills at the planning agency's regular gatherings.
"You have from time to time suggested that MAG cannot prevent you from performing cartwheels during your comments," the letter states. "That position is incorrect."
MAG officials said they have warned Barker repeatedly over the years not to perform cartwheels because it disrupts the meetings and poses a risk of injury to herself or others.
