Don't bother it's been decided. I've heard this from more than several people. Council is just going through the motions so they "look" like they are offering this up fair and square. In reality if they really wanted to do this the correct way they would go to the candidate who had the next highest vote total. It's so discouraging when the ink isn't even dry on the resignation letter of Stanton and already the person to assume the position has been named....once again another example of how incestuous our city council is....another one of the New Baltimore families....
