Will there ever be a peaceful Mayor Pro Tem election?

Despite an unanimous vote to elect District 6 Councilman Steve Chambers to Mayor Pro Tem, District 4 Councilman Ken Vance’s unexpected motion to amend the night’s agenda to include the inter-Council election sparked a small controversy as District 3 Councilwoman Denese Shinholster, who seconded the motion, said that Vance was acting underhanded in the last minute amendment.
“When we first started doing this, we said we’d talk about these things; I don’t like these things just springing up,” Shinholster said. “I think we ought to stay together as a Council. At least a courtesy call would have been nice.”
