Berding: Take Cranley Off Arts Committee
There's a motion by Jeff Berding on council's agenda that calls for the removal of John Cranley from the Arts, Culture, Tourism and Marketing committee.
But it's not as juicy as it might sound. Cranley asked to get off the committee, Berding said Tuesday. And as chairman of the rules committee, Berding's the one to introduce a removal.
City rules require committees to have at least three members. So there's enough on arts (Chris Bortz, Roxanne Qualls, Laketa Cole, David Crowley and chairman Chris Monzel) without Cranley. And Cranley's on other committees too: economic development, law and finance, which he chairs. He's also on Qualls' transportation subcommittee.
