Ready, Get Set...

For Worse

In today's New York Post, former East Side City Council Member, Charles Millard, goes ballistic about what came out of the mouths of our oh-so-savvy-seven during last week's debate.

He gives de Blasio, Katz and Weprin a serious beat-down, while Fidler manages to escape without too much harm. But what we found most interesting about the piece - which might shed a bit more light for the likes of EnWhySeaWonk & Co. - was Millard's assertion that:

"The whole evening would have been laughable if it were not so serious. Whoever is speaker dominates the City Council, which passes a huge budget every year and has increasingly found and flexed muscles on issues from zoning for big-box stores to the immigration status of street vendors. And it has never failed to override a mayoral veto when called upon by the speaker to do so. "
