Bored in board assignments
After some tension in the run-up to today’s nine hour long budget retreat, the Vancouver City Council assigned its seven members to boards and commissions with nary a kerfuffle.
Councilor Jeanne Stewart had rallied to reclaim her C-Tran board seat, from which she was booted in early 2011.
But Mayor Tim Leavitt recommended her for the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Committee instead — and, she was cool with that.
So, your dedicated City Hall reporter remains slightly bored and drama free. Follow me on Twitter (@col_cityhall) for updates on today’s budget retreat (held in a room at the Artillery Barracks, not Mt. Hood Ski Resort).
Up now is talking about goals for 2012. Mine? Stay awake.
