Plummer Meets the Police

Viola Plummer’s brief-but-triumphant return to the City Council chambers was greeted with, well, a lot of police.

I got there just after a welcoming committee of officers escorted Plummer to the balcony, since, technically, she doesn’t work here anymore. I caught up with Plummer and her boss, Charles Barron, as they were leaving. Barron told me he thought the whole incident was “totally disrespectful” and that the Speaker of the City Council, Christine Quinn, “has lost her mind.”
