Mayor Art Ward didn't try to nominate Ed Krawiecki, Jr as an assistant city attorney after all.
Ward said that Krawiecki's nomination "will not be made this evening due to some personal issues that arose."
I'm not at all sure what that's about.
And that comes after I felt quite confident that the council would have voted 4-3 to reject the nomination.
Update at 9:20 - The mayor told me that Krawiecki asked him late today not to put the nomination in. Ward said he cited personal issues. That's all Ward claims to know.
It isn't clear then whether the mayor will try again at a future meeting or not.
