I'm glad it's out in the open now that abstaining on votes in a disservice to your ward. I wonder Flattery will will take note? Apparently his actions are cowardly towards ward 3. By the way, isn't calling in from Florida better than not attending at all? Ward 3 might as well relinquish their seat.

MZNorml: I bet he is bluffing. Either that, or he is worried about redrawing ward lines that will split up his fan base.

joecanavan: Can you try sending your comment again with some sentence structure? It's hard to understand.

It's funny...Margy Halverson used to be lambasted for calling in to council meetings when she was on winter break. Donnie calls in from winter break and it's "ok". Double standards? You be the judge. Kratos has spoken!

You get what you pay for, but Dodgers might get more if they used a simple video connection via computer to include - and accommodate - any council member who flees Iowa weather in the depth of winter or travels frequently for business or other, personal reasons.

Donnie can be a councilman as long as he wants. He's never going to be Mayor.
