Council - We Forgive Your Choice in 2005...
As we head toward January 2006 and the vote on a City Council president, it is an imperative that the council see to it that the minority representative (and I DO NOT MEAN Mark Seabrook) is removed from any possibility of affecting the course of government.
No matter the temptation...no matter the party line...the council member from the 1st District must be eliminated from any possibility of exerting his medieval mentality on the city.
No matter who the council elects as president in 2006, it must not for one moment compromise its integrity to the grasping ambition of Councilman Cappucino. If anything has become clear, any of seven members of the council are more qualified to serve as vice-president of the City Council.
As a life-long Democrat, I must admit that even Mark Seabrook would make a better vice president. Do not pander, council. Second place in the January vote is NOT a justification for making council's most unqualified member vice president. Give it to Seabrook before you concede the position to Dan Coffey, Democrat-in-name-only.
If you don't credit my opinion, just ask Vila-ann.
And let me invite you, readers, to nominate (and explicate) your choice for council president in 2006, and your choice for vice-president.
