As folks may know, whenever a district Council member introduces a bill that impacts only his or her district, the other 16 members traditionally vote for it as a courtesy - and they expect the administration not to veto it, for the same reason.
otherwise known as "you don't mess with my bribes and corruption, I won't mess with yours".
so stupid, do they really think that (bad) decisions made in one district have absolutely no ramifications across the city?
Council really is a waste of taxpayers' money, even with new members, they continue to be a self-serving body for sale to the highest bidder.
Isn't Squilla supposed to be working for all taxpayers in his district, not just Driscoll and Bob Brady?
