Fractious Council quintet oversteps boundaries
It’s hard to know what to make of the latest flare-up between Mayor Steve Bach and five of the nine members of City Council.
In a letter to Bach signed by Council President Keith King, Joel Miller, Andy Pico, Helen Collins and Don Knight, the five declared their opposition to any “local public funding” for City for Champions without voter approval. They noted “the proposal does not contain adequate checks and balances,”? and lacks “accountability or transparency.”
If C4C goes down at the polls, we’ll know why. It won’t be because of inherent flaws. It will die because of a sustained, deliberate and shameful campaign by certain council members to malign and delegitimize the proposal. Sadly, Keith King has aided and abetted his rookie renegades every step of the way.
