City Hall Dispatch: The timing of Lancaster's departure
Interesting side note regarding the timing of buildings' commish Lancaster's resignation
On Thursday, Lancaster was scheduled to appear before the Assembly's Cities Committee, chaired by mega-Lancaster hater Assemblyman Jim Brennan.
Obviously, this was something Lancaster hated doing. The last time she appeared before the committee, last year, she did so only after the threat of subpoena, and then showed up only briefly, even though members of the state legislature tell me that she was the whole focus of the hearing.
For what's it worth, the timing of the announcement today--and Hizzoner's public ditching yesterday do seem curious, since most of the damage - -to our city, its citizens, and their sense of well-being, had already been done.
