Shout Out to the Newbies
Lappin, White & Vacca
We commend newly installed Council Members Jessica Lappin, Thomas White and James Vacca for going on the record as siding with the voters on the term limits issue - meaning, they have absolutely no plans to undo their own term limits legislatively.
We also commend newly installed Council Member Rosie Mendez for being honest about her position, that she will have no hesitation overturning the will of the voters legislatively. Obviously, we do not share her point of view.
That all happened on tonight's airing of NY1's Inside City Hall.
And Council Member White ... he delivered the most poignant line of the evening:
You can't represent the people, and also say that I'm going to go against the people.
