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 local TV news that she's been banned 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 says 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.
