Criticism of City Council

Former City Council candidate Paul Long questioned the amount of money raised by Signer for the election. Signer spent $51,305 in the general election compared to $28,632 spent by Wes Bellamy and $23,081 spent by Kathy Galvin. [1] Bellamy defended Signer. Fogel tried to respond but was ruled out of order. [2] [3]
