In an extremely rare occurrence last night the Council rejected a Mayor's appointment to a Board or Commission. The Council rejected the appointment of Eric Malo to the Board of Fair Commissioners.

The vote was 19-17 for his confirmation. With three members abstaining, Malo failed to get the needed 21 votes in order to be confirmed. I will post who voted which way at a later time. Watch for it.
