Mayor Cook isn't done embarrassing himself or burning what is left of his legacy. Are you surprised?
Tomorrow Mayor Cook wants former Council Member Gene Finke appointed to the Charter Review Committee. The Mayor plans on trying to get the committee to recommend term limits be lifted for city elected officials. He apparently thinks he could still win an election - a laughable premise no matter how you try to sell it.
Finke spent an evening last week at a special council meeting calling all of the residents of District 1 (a district he used to represent, by the way) "white supremacists." Check the video from the redistricting meeting and you'll see.
Those who have had the displeasure of being around the old coot says when he's not sleeping through meetings he's making very bizarre statements and blocking any progress a committee might make.
The Mayor is obviously trying to put a puppet on the committee so he can try and force his will on their findings. Too bad City Council sets the final changes with Charter Review.
