Carolyn Davis and Vonciel Jones Hill Don’t Like Meetings

Over on the DMN‘s City Hall Blog, there’s a good item about two councilwomen who think the city shouldn’t keep track of which councilmembers actually show up at meetings. Back when Tom Leppert was mayor, he noticed a problem. Some councilmembers were showing up for meetings, but after they were counted present and the meetings got under way, the councilmembers were ducking out. So now there’s a city staffer who records exactly how much of the meeting the councilmembers actually attend. Councilwoman Vonciel Jones Hill calls it “a dumb rule.” And Councilwoman Carolyn Davis calls the monitoring “totally, totally, totally unfair,” but then she confessed that she didn’t know what they were talking about.
