Before any media spin/frenzy ensues, I have decided to articulate the details on the upcoming special city council meeting.

As leaders we must be willing to set new precedents and send new messages; at times that can be difficult to say the least. Leaders must also be willing to weather the criticism and detriment that invariably comes with the imperfect process of making those difficult decisions. It’s often referred to as “The Penalty of Leadership.”
