Last night’s opening City Council meeting of 2014 was devoid of the drama that marked many of last year’s meetings. Will this be a trend? Only time will tell. One meeting is a pretty small sample size. But Councilmember Kathy Miller said this afternoon she liked what she saw.
“We worked through a lot of important issues last night,” Miller said. “Some of those issues could have been quite contentious and they were not. The discussion was very robust, everyone was respectful, and we came to some very good decisions last night. I’m hoping this will be the new, kinder, gentler Stockton City Council.”
