Times like this, I wish I had my site. Thanks to QCI for the guest post. I have confirmed Mayor Winborn will indeed Veto the City Council action of Wednesday night, which moved the legal counsel away from the authority of the City Administrator.
This is a rather bold step, as it alienates Alderman Barnhill, which has been a constant supporter of the Mayor. As I understand it, the Mayor believes this is typical city council micromanagement. If you review his past, this makes sense given wide powers the County Administrator has enjoyed over the years.
Thankfully for Thee, Malin is not a reactionary kind of guy. Its well known Thee supported this move and did everything possible to see it clear. What the fall out will be is unknown. My sources tell me to look at an attempt of some elected officials to continue this type of agenda.
