"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

14:59 - Agreed, a petty shot at someone's looks. Very offside.

The occasion was Councillor Abel taking the Mayor's place, carrying out a formal function of cutting a  ribbon to open a new business.

One might argue an opportunity to promote the Town.

The Councillor's "looks" were not the issue . 

Reference was to the Councillor's wardrobe within the context of the ribbon-cutting occasion of a new business in town. 

There  was no comment. Merely an observation.

 At the end of a post on the lamentable lack of vitality in  retail business downtown.

If I were sufficently computer savvy, I might have simply reproduced the photo. 

But it's my blog and my town and I'll cry if I want to.

No comment was required, the context of how it was "observed" was ample to demonstrate your disdain for the person and his dress.

The rest of your post here shows that while it may be your blog and party, the tone, content and mind-set are clearly Victorian.
