Without discussion, the 12-member council approved a resolution apologizing to Company A, 1st Battalion, 24th Marines, based in Grand Rapids, Mich., for the mayor’s action Friday afternoon.Oh. Right. It's not about how the Marines got jerked around by some idiot with a power fetish, it's about how the resolution will effect an initiative on INCOME TAX. Right. What a fucking crapweasel.
Mr. Finkbeiner, who has refused to apologize and has defended his decision, yesterday declined to say whether he would sign the resolution or if he believed the controversy would hinder the city’s attempt to renew the 0.75 percent income tax on the March 4 ballot.
The city council did the right thing. The mayor still needs to be spanked out of office as soon as possible.
