Councilman Mulligan -- Mr. Yes????
We're beginning so see why Thomas Mulligan was acceptable to the Democrats on the Omaha City Council as Chuck Sigerson's replacement. That's because, he simply doesn't have the guts or tenacity to oppose Jim Suttle and other Dems on the council (with the possible exception of Pete Festersen who is only against tax increases to protect his future run for mayor).
According to the Nebraska Watchdog, Joe Jordan,
"Omaha Councilman Thomas Mulligan said if higher taxes are needed to balance the city’s floundering budget he “does not want to be Mr. No.” "
We'd suggest that Councilman Mulligan start thinking about his constituents rather than collegiality. Otherwise his term will end when Suttle's does.
