Herndon Pt. II

Source: gazette

Once upon a time in Herndon Va. a group of citizens threw out their city council and mayor over support for a day laborer center. history may be about to repeat itself...
An effort to recall Gaithersburg Mayor Sidney A. Katz and most of the City Council is afoot after the council did not act Tuesday night on a proposed law that would ban day laborers from seeking work along city streets.

Once it became clear that the council would defer the fate of the controversial anti-solicitation ordinance, last night’s meeting devolved into open heckling and verbal tirades against city leaders. The group of outraged residents, mostly from Olde Towne, at one point stormed out of the meeting in disgust.

‘‘They’re gutless. They know what the right thing to do is, but they’re looking for political cover,” said resident Dan Searles after as the group discussed the recall outside City Hall. ‘‘This is a time for real people, real adults, real leaders, to stand up. And they refuse.”
It appears this fire isn't going out any time soon.
