I saw the weirdness on the announcement too. I didn't make it up...just copied and pasted it into A Red Oak Window Seat (AROWS-HA...I did just make THAT up!) Maybe one of the more sage readers can clarify it for us. I left Monday's meeting under the impression that Scott Lindsey was only nominated, not seconded and the vote died. I guess Mayor Bryce took a lesson from Senators Kennedy and McCain and just considered the dead vote a Council member's positive referendum that Scott was elected as Pro Tem... sorta' like the zombified Illegal Alien amnesty bill haunting the halls of Congress again after it died earlier this week. It's all about smoke and mirrors anyway. What a shew tonight folks....what a shew....! :<)
I heard from a reliable source that Eric Smith received four (4) phone calls immediately after the announcement was posted. Two of these calls were from Pfiefer, one call from Mayor Bryce and one call from Little Toddie (still can't get his fingers out of the frosting...geez...what does it take LittleToddie?) I'm going to poke a little fun and just name Todd Little as the defacto Mayor Pro Tem and resident "kingmaker" even though I don't think he could get elected for dog catcher at this point in the game.
Little Toddie...why don't you just go ahead and announce for Mayor and "Great Leader" or "Imperious Diety-Man of Red Oak" two years early so I can ROTFLMAO when the voters reject YOU too.
Put on your seat belts folks...push your tray tables to their upright positions...it's gonna' be a bumpy ride!
