Last night, at City Hall, all the candidates piled into the council chambers for a pretend meeting. They were split up into three different councils as obviously they wouldn’t all fit into one sitting.
I have been to council meetings before and actually enjoy going oddly enough and this was one of the first times I actually had trouble finding a seating in the 70’s style chamber. I shouldn’t have been surprised it was packed and I’m sure the majority of the people in there were just other candidates.
Unfortunately I was only there for the second sitting but I was intrigued as the candidates in that sitting were all first time candidates with the exception of Shelagh Montgomery. It was fresh to hear some different opinions and see how they responded to the discussion.
Were you there? Do you have something to say about the mock council? Even if you weren’t there, do you have something to say about the candidates running? Please share it in the comment section.
