A cynical attempt by our mayor to get her way, one way or another. Obviously she does not have to vote to push through another one of her pet projects, an environmental commission (like we need another commission anyway), so her and her climate change pipe dream pal, Drekmeier try to delay a vote until new council members are seated.
One can only hope that this new batch of council members will be willing, ready and able to deal with the important issues facing our city and not waste time and resources on vanity projects supported by dinousaur council members like Yoirko, who only care for their own self-serving interests.

Let's see how our distinguished Mayor comes out on issues like rectifying the jobs/housing imbalance - to relieve carbon load to the environment - or the issue of requiring Stanford to do something in within its enterprise that she steadfastly refuses to support at home.
We're going to find out, very soon, just how "green" some of our policy makers are.

Our "too much traffic" mayor is not interested in rectifying the jobs/housing imbalance. First of all she is against new housing (unless Stanford builds it on their own property) --she feels that it will create too much traffic. Second of all, dealing with the jobs/housing imbalance will be messy and will, therefore, a) cause conflict--which yoriko wants to avoid at all costs and b) distract from her goal of working only on climate change issues--nothing like jetting off to London and riding in private taxis while pushing "green" issues at home.
