June 7, 2012 LeBel's One Concern: Why Isn't the MUC/McGuffin Law Appointment on the Agenda?

At the June 5 Morristown City Council meeting, Paul LeBel was strangely silent, pretty much confining himself to pushing buttons to vote.

At the end of the meeting, however, he did have a question. Why was the Morristown Utilities Commission (MUC) appointment pulled from the agenda?

Mayor Thomas answered, and Paul went back to his IPad.

Actually, the agenda as it was posted on the city's website and printed out for meeting attendees did not have the MUC appointment on it at all. So there was no Mayor's appointment to pull. 

LeBel was ticked, but he contained himself better than usual.

What LeBel really wanted to ask, in my opinion, was "look, the McGuffin Law is in place thanks to the efforts at the state level of Rep. Don Miller and Sen. Steve Southerland in helping me, Kay Senter, Claude Jinks, Bob Garrett, and Chris Bivens overturn the appointment process adopted by the votes of 3,202 people in the 2001 MUC referendum, so when do I get to vote for the 20th time against the mayor's nominee from the MUC list and finally set it up to  vote for George McGuffin--the only person in all of Morristown who I think is capable of sitting in what is now and for 34+ years has been the 'McGuffin' seat on MUC?"
