Council forced to delay charter changes

The local laws would have allowed both political parties to hire their own attorney, if they chose, and also would have amended the corporation counsel's need to act as their legal advisor.
The full story can be found here, which also features a short video of Councilman Mark McGrath, R-District 2, talking about his opposition to hiring a minority attorney (we know it's dark but we're still learning how to do this kind of stuff).
Further background on the issues can also be found here and here.
