A look behind the curtain…

31 Jul

Cindy Locklear has an insider’s account of the current battle over redefining the role of the Deputy County Executive into a professional county manager.

Once a Local Law is clocked in, it has to “sit on the table” for 8 days before it can be moved for a vote. After the 8 days of aging ’”on the Table” expire, it’s within the discretion of the Chairman of the Legislature, whether or not to move the proposed law for a vote. If the Chair wants to leave it on the table the only way for a legislator to move it, is to “challenge the chair”. Apparently this is “political suicide” if the challenger and the Chair are of the same party (something I didnt know, til after the first time I did it).

You want to know how politics are played in the legislature? Cindy is giving you a blow-by-blow accounting at her new blog. Make sure you stop in to check it out.
