Mike Recchiuti, I made that complaint because he's also the Democratic City Chair. I expected the usual nonsense, but he told me at that time that he had been seriously considering ending his role as a city party boss.
Well, he's done it. I received word last week that Mike is stepping down. Consultant John Blankstein was asked to run, but has declined in favor of Olga Gonzalez.
I believe this makes Mike a better member of Council.
