At the end of tonight's city council meeting, council member Cohen announced plans for an open Town Hall meeting that he and council member Fergusson were proposing for Saturday, December 2, just before the start of the new council on December 5.
Upon hearing this, however, our esteemed Mayor Jellins quickly shot down the idea fearing that - God forbid - regular people could actually come and discuss their issues with council members in an open and informal setting.
He immediately forbid further discussion of the matter entirely, forcing a vote on whether there would be a discussion at all. The vote? You guessed it - 3-2 with the no's being Jellins-Duboc-Winkler.
Closed government without public input right to the end, eh Mayor Cheney (I mean Jellins)???
