Last evening the Manassas City Council voted to appoint the leftist, liberal political activist Martin Crim as City Attorney. Only two council members had the courage to vote against this appointment, Marc Aveni and the newly sworn-in Ian Lovejoy. It’s refreshing to see that there are actually Republicans on City Council who act like Republican elected officials in Manassas, rather than as emasculated errand-boys for city staff that recoil in sheer terror whenever policy differences surprisingly appear within an elected body. Unfortunately they’re in a 4-2 minority.
Of all the attorneys available in the DC Metro area, and it’s rather hard to miss one with any errant swing of a formerly-living feline, the best the City of Manassas could come up with for $200 an hour was Martin Crim? Sheesh.
