Monday’s virtual City Council meeting could turn into the Monday Night Fights when Maria Pereira, stripped of committee assignments by Council President Aidee Nieves for actions unbecoming of a member, is scheduled to address the body re “Valle & Brown conduct as Co-chairs, City Council Attendance from Dec. 2019 – Nov. 2020 and Secret City Council Adhoc Committee.”
The council agenda reference is for councilors Maria Valle and Marcus Brown. Pereira is something of a stickler regarding public official attendance be it her time on the Board of Education and now her first full year on the legislative body. She will likely issue a report card targeting council absences culled from minutes of committee and full council meetings.
How many council members will be bothered to plug in at 6:30 p.m. of the virtual meeting for public speaking and how much will Pereira cram into the few allotted minutes? The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m.
Council members, of course, will argue quality over quantity returning fire at Pereira’s scorched earth chaos and disruption of the body politic.
