Below is the video of Bellevue Council’s Pre-Council Meeting from 4 June 2013. The time stamps for the video will be uploaded as soon as possible. However, we’ve heard from many who wanted to see this video sooner rather than later.
If you’re looking for Councilwoman Jane Braunlich’s post-election loss rant, go to the 1:04:00 point in the video. Between this point and the public comment there are plenty examples of dysfunctional leadership and ax grinding. Not sure any further commentary is necessary. Enjoy!
