Here are a trio of videos from Tuesday night's City Council meeting related to the charter debate. First you'll see some public comments from Peter Tulin, Pat Kane, and Remigia Foy. Second, Mayor Scott Johnson's explanation for his appeal, and lastly the council debate leading up to the vote.

Check out the third video for the face Finance Commissioner Ken Ivins makes after Johnson takes a jab at Accounts Commissioner John Franck. Enjoy!

Based on recent inflammatory commentary regarding voter suppression and also relating this matter somehow to what's happening in Egypt places me with a perspective that Saratogain Citizen and its representatives will stop at nothing to gain a favorable end result. next will come personal attacks, political games and certain members of the council made targets of their decision or even non-decision. This needs to be put to bed and I urge the Mayor as Mayor of saratoga Springs to legally declare as Mayor the formation of a Charter Commission designed to review potential improvement to the current form of government and than openly presetn thri proposal to the Council and people of Saratoga Springs with the complete document and a fiscal analysis of the potential cost/ savings initially and in the future. I feel that is the only recourse left and should be addressed ASAP.

As I stated in my 2/19 commentary the personal attacks have started and will persist until election day. The lack of respect for our public servants has reached an all-time high. This does not reflect professionalism but instead pure gutter politics. The wise know where it is coming from and will deal with it professionally. IGNORE IT!!!!!!!!!
