HONIG SAGA CONTINUES: ETHICS COMMISSION REVELATION IRKS CITIZENS!  
Council meeting, Tuesday, January 21.  Excerpt of Council meeting by Stef Stefandies.  Link. After the meeting, Seward shook his head in disbelief as he left council chambers. "A councilor can attack you using his disgusting website late at night from the shadows  to  malign you and lie about it. When we come forward in public we are chastised for confronting him as we expose his unethical actions and we are the ones that are wrong? There is something very corrupt in this process. I've never really understood the 'good old boy' reference until tonight," said Seward.  Read complete story here.  Link.
