City Staff Manipulated City Council and Citizens, Resident Adrian McGilly Says

Below is the short video of a statement by Adrian McGilly, husband of Emeryville Mayor Jennifer West, to the City Council at its last regular meeting Tuesday, Oct. 2. He is addressing the controversy over the planned cutting of 33 mature street trees to make way for a park. McGilly  has written to the City Council asking that at least some of the trees be preserved. His letter revealed that city staff deleted two key sections of the arborist report before sending it to the City Council to decide whether or not to cut the trees.

    We obviously have an unelected, unaccountable secret government in Emeryville. I say, FIRE ALL STAFF IMMEDIATELY, and then figure who, if any, to bring back. It may be necessary to wait until Progressives are in the majority, but even Nora and the rest of the old guard should be shocked at the naked manipulation of what they know [you would hope, anyway]. STAFF is the Frankenstein created by the City Council and its flunkeys.
