In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

In a meeting that harkened back to the “bad old days” (I’ve only been covering these meetings for the last four years, what do I know?), the Board of Trustees (BOT) held a workshop from 5:30 to 7 p.m., and then went right into their regularly scheduled meeting at 7. They didn’t finish up till just after 11p.m. Phew!

Light Agenda Leads to Long Night

by Joseph Lekarczyk

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.
