Get a load of this official statement from the Mayor’s office:
Mayor Mike Fahey was advised this morning that the private funding for the new downtown baseball stadium would be in jeopardy if David Sokol was not reappointed to the MECA board.
He “was advised”? By WHOM??? Who are these new advisors of the Mayor’s? We thought Mike was the Mayor. We thought he makes the decisions. So now we’re to understand that there is someone else telling him what to do? Nice, nice.
And we could have sworn that Fahey said that there were lots of other qualified people for the position. It would seem that those who ACTUALLY run the city disagree…
Well, just another case of Fahey going off half-cocked and the matter having to be reeled in.
You could say that Fahey is lucky that the recall petitioners are done.
