Oh my gosh ... Council delays putting tax cap on the ballot!

Wow, did I call this or did I call it? I knew they were going to refuse to put it on the ballot! I'm totally shocked ... but, actually, not that shocked.
I watched most of the public hearing last night and was surprised at the level of confusion especially after Tammy Simmons of NHAC explained the specifics of the proposal so efficiently. She tells the Monitor today that NHAC will file an injunction to force it on the ballot but that might be too late.
So now the city will spend another $20,000 for a special election, probably in the dead of winter, in which no one will participate. Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
More on this later.
