Acting Mayor William “Speedy” Marsh was seen thanking – what seemed to be – his supporters on the Committee, afterwards, in the parking lot.
The most ridiculous (and amusing) utterance of the evening, “If you want to nominate Donald Duck, then go head” (A frustrated Marty Small).
There was some sympathy, for former Mayor Bob Levy, expressed in the conversations amoung guests. One woman remarked, “He was not a politician. He was a good human being.” I presume that she does not acknowledge the commandment, “Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness,” as a mark of a person’s character.
Lance Winston shared a few thoughts after the meeting: “The majority spoke. Everything was legal. It was a fair and open process.”
Cappella was heard rejoicing in the parking lot: “We got it again. Get rid of the devils. We out smarted them.”
And the icing on the cake: “If we weren’t a national disgrace before, we are now” (George Tibbitt).
