Man, I'm starting to feel like Bill Kristol with all these wrong predictions. I assumed the International Socialist Organization's bid for an exemption to sell papers on State St would be granted easily. I suspected Ald. Thuy Pham-Rammele would make a fuss, but I figured Ald. Mike Verveer would hold enoguh sway to get the measure passed.
Alas, the VOC rejected the resolution 2-1, with one member abstaining. Verveer was the only vote in favor.
The full Council will vote on the resolution later. The Downtown Coordinating Committee already approved it.
