Public Safety Policy Committee shot down

I give credit to Mr. Steiner for proposing adding to the 7 committees a Public Safety Policy Committee. With all that has transpired over the past 5 years and all that is still going on in both Police and Fire, the city administration should have included the committee. In a 7 to 4 vote against, I would say they (council) is already showing signs of weakness in dealing with a out of control police and fire departments. Only 2 council members spoke out against, Sistky and Cannon. It does make sense that Cannon would not want his FFD backers to be called into question. He should have recused himself, since FFD endorsed him.  Charlie wants to maintain the status quo.. even now.
Soon or later, Public Safety will have to come under scrutiny by the Mayor and the council.
24 minutes into the meeting is the discussion about Mr. Steiner's proposal.

I was somewhat successful in getting Cannon to publish his home address on the government site, but still he has not identified his business, neither has Shepard.
If, as the City supporters have said in the past, our new government should be transparent from the beginning.
