JW says Keith Holliday's disclosure of an agreement to ignore the TRC report smacks of "good 'ol boy, behind-closed-doors decision-making shenanagins that erode elected officials credibility," and adds "I have been a long-time supporter of Keith but he's lost some of my respect. I am disappointed in this kind manipulation, which I thought was beneath Keith...this way of running the City is a crock."
The N&R reports that some City Council members were not happy about being out of the loop: Asked an angry [Goldie] Wells of the mayor: "Why didn’t you tell me that was the reason you were dragging your feet?"
"I resent the hell out of it, not being called," said Yvonne Johnson, slapping her hand on the table. "If you’re going to do it for one, do it for all, damn it."
What a crap headline on the N&R article, too: "TRC mention starts argument." Why not something more accurate, like, "Revelation of secret agreement to go back on promise irks Councilmembers"?
UPDATE: Comments from Councilman Tom Phillips and a clear-eyed Mr. Sun, among others.
