For the second consecutive Council meeting I am unable to attend due to health reasons (this time a cold). To my surprise, Council did not vote on the pay raises two weeks ago (GOOD), and it is a shame that I can’t be there to protest the passage of such tonight. If and when Council does approve this legislation I will respond once I learn the news. Hope everyone who can attend this meeting does so. Personally, I hope to be back in the chambers with the first meeting of 2020.
I feel like I should be in attendance for tonight’s council meeting (the committee meetings are starting now as I type this from home, in fact). However, I am in recovery from a stomach virus I contracted over the weekend and feel it would be irresponsible of me to go to a public meeting where I could possibly get others sick. Even so, I strongly suspect that Council will vote tonight (though, I hope I am wrong) on the proposed raises for the Mayor and other elected executive
