The Lauer Lynching
He's been heard droning on in parking lots about Lauer's inability to get back to him immediately when he has a question.
I got news for Benol.
The Council Solicitor does not represent him. He represents the Council as a whole, and should not do any work that is not authorized by a majority.
Benol, who incorrectly views himself as some sort of constitutional expert, has reportedly recruited Hayden Phillips, newcomer Matt Dietz, John Cusick, and Glenn Geissinger. It's unknown whether any of them is biting.
Hopefully not. Both Cusick and Phillips would like to be Council president. They might give Benol something in exchange for a vote.
I've heard one very ridiculous name as Lauer's replacement, but won't repeat it here until I check it out.
Perhaps Benol wants Council to do way with its own solicitor because having to listen to another opinion makes his head hurt.
All this palace inrtrigue is precisely why I did not want to see Cusick back in office. Instead of trying to stick a knife in a good lawyer's back, Benol should try to represent the people he was elected to serve and update his Council Facebook page more often than once every 18 months.
