Vancouver city council woman Jeanne Harris at the May 16, 2011 council workshop where changes to the city council ethics policy were being discussed. Just a portion of the over all exchange, but the portion I now believe she expects and has asked to receive a public apology for, as reported in the Columbian newspaper.
Ms. Harris, known for last years “Gavel Down” incident accepted the slap on the wrist deemed appropriate by the first ever council ethics committee. As Larry Smith states, it was imperfect but what council had been given to work with.
Telling her that it was her behavior, not his behavior that brought it about is not verbally attacking, it is pointing out the error of her way.
I am left wondering, will we now see Ms. Harris continue her bizarre behavior while sitting on council? Will she jump at any and every opportunity to “get back” at those she has now decided “wronged” her?
Larry Smith says she has no apology coming and I agree.
Move on, Ms. Harris. Or resign.
