The Council is a bunch of self-serving hypocrites who hire and retain City executives who are just as bad.

How much money did the city spend for the room and refreshments at the Stanford Park?
Why wasn't a city facility like the council chambers used?
Same old story, wasting our tax dollars for their vanity.

The Chamber of Commerce sponsored the event with a no-host bar. On another thread Web Link , Heyward Robinson pointed out that Council Chambers were used in years past. If Heyward is the only person that remembers this, the event was obviously not very memorable.
