Congratulations to Mr Caraviello and Mr Camuso on their new positions! Welcome to Mr Knight on his election to the City Council. Mr Camuso ran a great meeting, was extremely organized and on track. Kudos to Mr Camuso for his deft handling of nine minutes of statements directed at his credibility and qualifications to hold the position as President of the City Council.
