The agenda for this meeting notes that this will be a conference with legal counsel regarding a threat or anticipated/potential litigation. Well that is true as the City Council majority got caught violating the Brown Act last week as they secretly texted each other to discuss the special meeting that was supposed to be held on Friday.

But they once again underestimated Mayor Miguel Pulido, who proceeded to punk them in royal fashion. Continue reading
