We were unable to make it to this meeting, but we're glad to see that VCDL was well-represented.
At least one councilman (Mr. DeSteph) expressed interest in the appeal from VCDL members and stayed after the session ended to talk briefly with the group. He promised that he would forward an inquiry regarding whether any City (public) funds had been spent towards the MAIG and if there had ever been a quorum or vote taken regarding such.
This is certainly a lot more interest than has been shown at other City Council meetings. The only comment made at any of the meetings I've attended was that "...supported Hizzonner's support of MAIG...", or words to that effect. Perhaps we can make hay out of the "public funds" or quorumissues at future meetings.
Perhaps Councilman DeSteph is a chink in the armor.The withdrawal of themayor of the largest city in the Commonwealth from MAIG would speak volumes.
