Below is a series of e-mails between City Council members regarding a request by Councilman Mark Wojcik, R-District 2, for the council to honor two city firefighters for recent acts of bravery. The firemen’s names have been omitted pending the council’s decision on whether to honor them at tomorrow night’s meeting.
McGrath to the City Clerk:
“Attached are the two firemen we will honor at Thursday's meeting. Please draw up two commendations and also let me know if you want me to do it or if you want your own people to honor them. Thanks
Councilman Gary Galuski, D-District 6:
“Councilmen McGrath, as I mentioned to you at the finance meeting, I would speak with Council president Campana than make the decision. As chairman of the human resources committee I decide who we will honor during the good news portion of the monthly council meeting. I look forward to reviewing your request and than make my decision.
Thank you, GG”
“You forgot to include the Times Union. I know your real motive in this. Again, as I stated in my response I will review your request.”
Councilman Bill Dunne, D-District 4:
“Gary, Mark was too busy sending his press release claiming Jim Conroy is advising/influencing us regarding city hall.”
“Thanks for your input Bill. I must caution you however. The conspiracy theory over the "Feigned outrage" certainly has me worried about you. I hope you're well. Thanks.”
Councilman Mark Wojcik, R-District 1:
Let's just honor the two firemen on Thursday night.
As far as all the other "white noise"-----303 days and counting.
