We’ll Get Around to It
By Laura Sanchez
The Monday, Aug. 17 meeting opened with a stunner— Councilor Sally Mayer announced she had removed her name from the October election ballot. Mayer said she would be moving to Chicago in January for six months to a year. Mayer said her daughter’s family needed her. “My son-in-law has been a wonderful stay-at-home dad but now he has a job,” and the working couple needs Grandma to babysit. Mayer’s decision leaves one District 7 candidate still on the ballot and one write-in candidate, neither of whom she endorses.
The Council unanimously approved Councilor Don Harris’ bill setting aside $400,000 in Open Space money to acquire land in the Tijeras Arroyo. The parcel helps create a wildlife corridor and preserve the watershed. Councilor Michael Cadigan was excused.
