Blackmon, who was deputy chief under Tom Leppert, reminds that Rawlings's predecessor held annual Christmas parties with the council that were also "purely social in nature." To that end, she says, City Attorney Tom Perkins will circulate a memo amongst the council reminding them to keep it casual.
I know, I know: What's to stop council members from talking shop? "Take it up with the Legislature," Blackmon says. "But Mary Suhm and Tom Perkins will be there, as will spouses, and it's purely social in nature. But we made sure no violation of the Open Meetings Act had occured." So you're saying it's social, then.
