    How many DUI’s did Montello have before April 26, 2016? If there is a history of DUI’s and transparency issues, this city council should have never allowed the re-appointment.

    And has anyone ever heard of a new mayor not bringing in her own new administration political appointments? This mayor has left in place the old guard and it speaks loads about just how forward thinking she is; and her (and council’s) judgment may be called into question (esp. with regards to Montello’s re-appointment).

    Interesting …. a person who allegedly broke the law (April 26, 2016) serves as law director; and if he broke the law (found guilty) in the past, why would he be allowed to continue as law director. We need more investigation into his past to see if there have been more than 1 arrest for DUI, etc.
