I see Lenny and CM Garrett Dennis are trading insults over this on twitter: https://twitter.com/NateMonroeTU/status/1136727467178283010

It disturbs me that some of our civic leaders so frequently get in arguments on social media. I may be in the minority, but I see statesmanship as a positive.

This was just a procedural error and likely done with no malice, just incompetence. That said, they will have to re-vote and now that everyone knows how the original vote went, some gamesmenship could be used. All it takes is a member or two to give their preferred candidate max points and drop Boyer's point total. The original margin was slim; Boyer had a total of 356/400 and Flisram had 346/400. I doubt anyone would actually do that, but if so what a debacle it would be.

I don’t get how there’s not a city attorney present for something like this advising the board of what is allowed and not allowed.

There was.

Then that’s REALLY bad. I don’t expect all of the board member to know sunshine laws. I expect the lawyer though.

Definitely agree here. Curry generally calls twitter and social media a sewer. He could be right but he's swimming all in it and it doesn't look good.

Some would argue that politics in itself is a sewer.

Indeed. Just as water is wet.

A revote will be interesting.  $100 says the scores will be different on re-vote.  If I was one of the two losing candidates and I won the second time around I think I would just pass.

Brian Hughes is now saying that the decision to hire was done by voice vote versus secret ballot. If so this is lunacy. Are we to believe that a vote that was this close on paper, and they did the whole, “The Ayes Have It” thing?

Sometimes you need to “put the shovel down” and stop digging.

I'm starting to think we don't have the sharpest general council either...

Usually in most meetings that I've seen, whenever something like this comes up (a key vote, etc.), the AGC that's present usually briefs the board on the procedure and key laws so this sort of thing doesn't happen.

Frankly, I think everyone involved shares some of the blame (AGC first, then the board and Hughes second). This is basic stuff.

A voice vote in 3-way race where you can give each candidate an individual score?  How would that vote even be conducted.  Aren't these meetings recorded, and if so, lets hear the vote.
