Tonight's City Council Leadership Elections

Tonight the city council will elect a new council president and a vice-chairman of the council committee.

Jeff  "the Arrogant One" Vaught would probably love to be elected council president so he can use that in his campaign when he runs at the end of this year for mayor.  Walking around, beating his chest and announcing "I am currently council president".

I sincerely hope the council does not bestow this honor on him for the following two reasons:

1.  FACT:  When the council was considering restoring full minutes (which they did do) he vehemently opposed that.  If he had been successful, full and complete written documentation of council meetings would not have been restored, depriving the citizenry of true open government.
2.  FACT:  When Policy Statement 7 was last being reviewed, and changed, Vaught was strongly in favor of limiting citizen comments at meetings.  Fortunately others didn't see it that way.

Ironically, in the last election he referred to himself as a patriot.  What a joke.
