Council Votes Yup-Yup on City-Owned Convention Center Hotel
This just in. At this point, it's easier to tell you who voted against the city getting into the convention center hotel business rather than who voted for it: Vonciel Hill and Angela Hunt. (Mitchell Rasansky and Elba Garcia had to recuse themselves, as both own Citigroup stock, turns out.) Everyone else voted yea, yay. Tom Leppert, you, sir, are a winner. More to come shortly from Schutze and Merten, who've been at City Hall all day, lucky bastards. --Robert Wilonsky
