Our staff's Friday night pizza party here at CityCaucus Towers erupted into high fives and cheers when we heard Geoff 'Mayor' Meggs say the following:
"The only person I've heard complaining about it is the former Chief of Staff of the last mayor."
Geoff's only partly right about that. It was yours truly who raised the issue of the lacklustre response from the City of Vancouver at the one-year countdown to the 2010 Games, not the former Chief of Staff. But that's a quibble. We're just glad to hear that Hizonner is listening. A bunch of poorly paid staff researchers went home that evening finally feeling that their hard work and dedication had paid off.
That's now 2 leading members of the Vision caucus to mention us in the media. Gregor Robertson did it last month. Now if only Raymond Louie could mention us publicly our staff might complain less about working weekends.
For our valued email subscribers, here's a link to the CTV story featuring the interview with Meggs.
