Every time I talk with Mary Jolley about her dealings with her commission counterparts, I think of this program. Last week sounded like it could have been a take from this series. Mary asked a few questions and evidently all hell broke loose; Bronson got so mad he was shaking, Rosenbaum looked like he wanted to get violent, the Mayor "barked" something that Mary couldn't begin to understand and Beecher, well, he did share part of his sandwich with Mary. (To make it even better, there were witnesses to this zoo-like atmosphere).
And off to the side, watching this spectacle, was the new city manager, busily writing.
On Friday Mary met with Mr. Doyan. I have a feeling it went well.
