Although almost passing out in the heat wasn’t fun, I thoroughly enjoyed asking Mayor Baraka a question yesterday at his first post-inauguration press conference.
I asked him about the Youth Mayor and the Youth City Council he just appointed. Was it just symbolic? “All symbolism stops today,” he said.
The Youth Mayor will have duties, an office and a stipend.
Okay. Moving forward. Thanks to “Google News Alerts,” I’ll be keeping abreast.
