Bill Green Basically Calls His Job a Waste of Time

According to the Daily News‘s math beat reporter, at-large Councilman Bill Green has missed 15 of 16 budget hearings in the last two months. Brian O’Neill and Marian Tasco came in “second” and “third” in the absentee wars. Green’s rationale?

“The entire idea of waiting four hours and asking 15 minutes of questions is just not a good use of anybody’s time.”

Combine this with his weird “no” vote on Jim Kenney’s gay rights bill, it appears Green is trying to pull a “Costanza,” in which doing the least popular thing possible nets him the most popular support. The man might be running for mayor, after all.
