  1. I’m sure the council members are already wheeling and dealing behind closed doors on who will be appointed. This process is such a joke. It’s a you scratch my back and I’ll scratch your back process. Ask me how I know this? Boy can I tell you stories. The only council member that I trust to make a decision based on qualifications in Joan Bloom.
