Council restores cuts
The Council City Council restored money to a number of social service agencies earlier tonight according to a person I know who was at the meeting. Ten people spoke with about 30 in attendance, a pretty pitiful display when you consider there are 46,000 people in the community. It will be interesting to see how the whole thing plays out in tomorrow's newspaper.
I would not be so bold as to say that my letter this morning, or the handful of other letters last week, had any influence over the council. They voted last Thursday, 2-10, in favor of restoring the cuts, meaning they overwhelmingly voted against it. But, why the change of heart? Very weird.
