There seemed to be a little confusion about how to replace Archie “My job’s not fun anymore” Brooks. Chris Coleman of the Des Moines City Council began the meeting this a.m. asking if members were going to vote on how to replace Brooks. But the city attorney said the agenda wasn’t written up in a way to actually allow members to do anything official on the matter today. So basically, they met to set up a meeting for Monday.
Looks like they won’t put a temp in Brooks’ chair. Fourth Warders won’t have someone to complain to until voters pick someone in a special election. That’s looking like it will be December 12th (primary election) with the special election January 9th).
