How Not To Run A Meeting
The most recent Saratoga Springs City Council meeting again lasted almost five hours, beginning at 6:45PM and ending just before midnight. It is yet another example of Mayor Kim’s inability to efficiently carry out city business. I will be writing more about the December 20,2022, Saratoga Springs City Council meeting, but Foothills Business Daily (FBD) has published a brief and informative article on the meeting.

DA Heggen Lets Temporary Restraining Order Expire but Moves for Other Legal Action Against Montagnino and Kim
Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen has moved not to continue the temporary restraining order granted by Supreme Court Justice Diane Freestone in the wake of Mayor Kim’s and Commissioner Montagnino’s press conference after the November 20 shoot out on Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs. This is an excellent piece by FBD on Heggen’s most recent actions in the controversy.
