The council meeting yesterday afternoon was a combination of a zoo and a circus. Councilman Bethea rambled on and on and on about he is left out of the loop. Meetings take place and he is not invited. Probably because he's a boring person who cannot get to the point in less than thirty minutes. As to reducing the salary paid the honorable mayor - the chances of this scheme passing are slim, but how else are we to get the attention of the honorable mayor? Since this is not the CAINE MUTINY, Council cannot say," Mayor Mack you have no authority in this city, leave your office and return to your home immediately." Like it or not, we have to tolerate this guy for the next twenty-eight months. The kicker though was the announcement that Council President McBride wants the entire second floor cleared of the public whenever council goes into executive session. The reason for this piece of merda is that the members of the public overheard members of council yelling at each other!! The are a couple of ways to solve this problem. The most obvious one is don't yell at each other. That's too simple. Another, the 0ne I prefer, is hold your damn executive sessions on another day. And lastly, stop already with the damn executive sessions. For a group of public officials who yap about transparency, you sure don't practice it. What are you discussing that's so secret??? As to clearing off the second floor; I ain't gonna do it. This time I will make a stink. It will make the front page of the Trentonian - I love it. The big, bad security officers dragging away the disabled senior citizen living on a fixed income. Anybody who is interested in seeing pathetic in action, make the next council meeting.
