Having covered these discussions for three years I felt a nostalgic sense of déjà vu during much of the meeting, except for the welcome addition of Hotlips pizza on the taxpayers' dime.
One correction to your Hall Monitor article that I wanted to point out is that Commissioner Fritz bought the pizza, not the taxpayers.
WHAT?! You're telling me that the Commissioner paid for that pizza out of her own pocket?! Seriously!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??
Yes, she paid every dime of it.
How much was it?! I want to blog about this, instantly!
WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT?!
IT'S SO....INVOLVED...LIKE SHE CARES ABOUT THE PROCESS, OR SOMETHING!!!
Where was Nick Fish's fish'n'chips? That's what I'd like to know...
She does care about the process (as if you didn't already know that!)
As a matter of course, Commissioner Fritz occasionally pays for items that could be charged to the City.
Commissioner: Thanks. But please tell me, next time you're buying my dinner, so that I can refuse it with the dignity and poise you have come to expect. I just hope word doesn't get out to your colleagues and you end up getting stuck with the bill for the "extras" out of the city attorney's office this summer.
