On Wednesday January 2, 2013 there is no city council meeting at 0930 but there is one at 1400, (2:00 PM.) We will have two new people on the council and we should go to welcome them. This is a short agenda and does not take a lot of our time. The reason for going, IMHO, is to welcome our new mayor and commissioner. Mayor Hales will be very different than Sam and my hope is that Novick will be better than our last man who has now a firehouse and outhouse named after him. Hales, Fritz and Novick could do some wonderful things for our city and we should encourage them to be true representatives. I will go with one of my t-shirts that simply says, "WELCOME." Can you join us? This should be a time to celebrate, next week maybe not so much????
