Earlier in the morning, Brainard had a plea deal and sentencing date set for his court case — 4 p.m. May 17.

I’m sure there will be demonstrators present on this date.

No problem with council voting in Sam and Marty but it couldn’t wait until all members were present?  Poor start. Really Rick?  You didn’t notice the protesters?

I hope you are more aware of your surroundings as a council member! There are several people with business acumen we can rely on to make good decisions who are acutely aware of their surroundings.

Right, wrong or indifferent the voters saw fit to elect Mr. Brainard to the Council.  His detractors need to accept that and if they don’t like it and have enough support start a recall campaign.  Other than that, quit whining and let’s see what kind of job the guy does.

@“Not Freida Cook”  Brainard had the apparent good fortune of not allegedly beating the crap out of his girlfriend until AFTER the election.  Are you saying that the voters would have voted the same way if he had done it before the election?  Yes, the voters have the option to recall him.  And I suspect that knowing what they know now, they will.
