Last night Mayor Chavez reportedly spent some time making personal calls to all of the council victors in order to congratulate them on their victories; be they new (Rey Garduño, Trudy Jones) or returning (Brad Winter, Debbie O'Malley, Don Harris). This morning our Eyes tell us that His Highness called a meeting of his top staff people; a meeting to express his displeasure with last night's turn of events.
We'd guess that two people in particular were in Marty's dog house, Transportation Director Greg Payne, and Chief of Staff Barry Bitzer; whose involvement in last night's debacle has been well documented and ultimately failed miserably. If last night weren't bad enough, today we hear that Senator Pete Domenici has decided to call it quits and not run for re-election in 2008.
Could it get any worse for a controlling, power hungry, dictatorial politician? Right when his dream job opens up, his political power seems to be on a serious decline. Get ready boys and girls, these city meetings aren't going to be much fun for a long time to come.
