Meeting in the Lounge: Shooting, Attendance

The City Council’s Democratic Caucus is meeting right now in the member’s lounge.

According to one staffer who almost got attend the members-only meeting, the agenda includes:

The police shooting;
the new attendance policy; and
upcoming land-use issues and bills for consideration.

The ever-outspoken Charles Barron has called for Ray Kelly’s resignation. James Sanders, whose constituent was killed, said Kelly should resign if the police are found to have acted inappropriately.

Hiram Monserrate, a former cop, said it was a “questionable shooting and very problematic.”

Speaker Quinn said in a public statement that “appropriate actions will be taken” after a full investigation.
