For anyone who event passively follows the goings on in the City Council Chambers, there was no doubt last week's meeting would have the Council voting to pass an ordinance implementing immediate raises for all City employees, as well as accompanying ordinance drawing funds from the City's reserve fund. And there was no doubt, the ordinances would pass along the same 5-3 margin as the first reading. We were all wrong. Jason and Nick take a quick look at the possible election day fallout from Council member Diane Seif's last-second 180 and set up discussion for the final days before voters head to the polls on April 3.
In the show's second half, the duo wrap up the round of candidate interviews, introducing voters to: District 2 incumbent Trish Carlyle; District 4 (2-year) incumbent Fred DeMoro; and District 4 (4-year) candidates Donna Gordon and Bob Johnson.
