I Just Watched My 2nd City Council Meeting

The first time I had to leave work early to see in person. This one, I was able to watch on Thank you Seth. This is an amazing leap forward for our community. Great quality, I got used to the sound. Wish the main council secretary would speak into her microphone.

What I saw impressed me. For the most part, these elected officials are fighting for us. A couple of debates impressed me. The denial of a request for a private company to come in and dig up the streets and install ugly devices on public telephone poles. Also, The rally around the foreclosure problem in the city of Lynn and figuring out ways to get these abandoned homes occupied and fixed up and/or demolished. Some good work going on which makes you wonder why Cyr made them look like a bunch of jerks in the first place. Let all the cameras and flash photography (Mr. Cahill) that people want to bring. The council should be honored to be so desired.

To be clear, Mr. Cyr wasted a lot of taxpayer dollars in fighting this thing and I hope Lynn CAM isn't discouraged by his antics. It seems obvious to me, they won't enforce any of those stipulations as they are for the most part, completely ludicrous and it seems as if most of the chamber agrees.

I applaud the few in the chamber that spoke up about the absurdity and even illegal actions proposed in those stipulations.

Bravo City Council and Thank You Seth!!!
