In a very enjoyable County Council Meeting, John Hall was sworn in to fill the seat of the late Bob Caldwell.
Joe Holloway was nominated to become the new Council President and Matt Holloway was nominated to become Vice President. Both were unanimously elected.
As the meeting went on and as many are seeing RIGHT NOW on PAC 14, Rick Pollitt has sent in his supporters on the Bennett Middle School construction or the hope thereof.
What ALL of you do NOT know is that County Executive Rick Pollitt has gone to the County Council and asked that Bennett Middle School construction project be brought back up on the agenda.
Now, he has also stated that IF they do NOT place it on the agenda, he will go to the State and attempt to bypass the County Council. THIS is why you're seeing people come out of nowhere to try and shame the Council into bringing it up again, knowing the County cannot afford it in any way, shape or form.
Congratulations Mr. Hall. There was an incredible field of qualified citizens being considered for this seat and I, for one, believe the Council made the right choice.
