More from "State of the City"

I'll have to post on some of the things I saw and heard there later.  For now, I'll start at the end:

Near the end of the meeting, Victor Ruiz stood to "ask a question."  But it wasn't really a question.  It was more of a campaign speech.  And he started it the oddest way.  I'm not sure if I heard him right, but it sounded like he got a ticket.  It wasn't clear if it was a citation from code enforcement or the Sheriff's Department.  And it sounded like he was mad that he couldn't just call city hall as he had in the past to get the ticket "fixed."

Because he couldn't get it fixed, he was saying this was evidence that the staff at city hall was cruel.

Oh, boo hoo.  Pay the ticket, why don't you?
