The GRAMA fight sparked conversation on the Syracuse Citizens’ Facebook page. Nagle told The Tribune that some of the comments relating to Carlson were "venomous," and that Brown also was unfairly criticized.

The council voted 3-2 last week to delay taking action on Atkin’s appointment.

A special council meeting to vote on the appointment has been scheduled for Tuesday.

Atkin, who was at the meeting, said he did not take the dispute personally.

Nagle made her remarks about the Facebook posting in the time allotted at the end of the meeting for reports from the elected officials. She talked about the higher than usual number of suicides in Syracuse recently and said she believes some of the people who killed themselves had been bullied.

"That Web page was not about Syracuse citizens, it’s about spinning hatred," Nagle said. She urged anyone who is affiliated with the group to post "that you’re not going to be a part of the hate."
