Town Hall Meeting Shot Down By Jellins/Duboc/Winkler

Upon hearing this, however, our esteemed Mayor Jellins quickly shot down the idea fearing that - God forbid - regular people could actually come and discuss their issues with council members in an open and informal setting.
He immediately forbid further discussion of the matter entirely, forcing a vote on whether there would be a discussion at all. The vote? You guessed it - 3-2 with the no's being Jellins-Duboc-Winkler.
Closed government without public input right to the end, eh Mayor Cheney (I mean Jellins)???
