In these pages, Iâ€™ve taken my councilmember to task for contacting me only to invite me to his expensive fundraisers. Iâ€™ve wondered what he does. Yesterday I got the following message which tells me, for the first time, some of what heâ€™s up to. Fair is fair. Give credit where due. Tonight he and I…
