Salcedo Resigns From Planning Commission!
So, I figured I'd stay home tonight and not travel over to City Hall to watch the Planning Commission meeting. I figured most of what they were going to deal with would be pretty mundane and I could always watch it on my tape. Silly me!
SALCEDO BAILS OUT
Planning Commissioner Edward Salcedo announced at the beginning of the meeting that he was resigning for personal reasons and that the meeting tonight would be his last. He leaves his position on the commission after serving only half of his term, which expires in February, 2015.
SEVEN SLOTS TO FILL TOMORROW
This now means that the City Council will have seven (7) positions to fill Tuesday night instead of six - three (3) on the Planning Commission and four (4) on the Parks and Recreation Commission.
ALL BUT A DONE DEAL
If there was any doubt that Jim Fitzpatrick was going to have a warm seat waiting for him tomorrow night, that is gone now.
CLARK - IN OR OUT?
In an interesting sidebar, Vice Chair Sam Clark ran the meeting instead of Chairman Colin McCarthy. I'm trying to decide whether that was an audition or a swan song. I guess we'll find out tomorrow.
