Meeting with "about 30 people representing labor unions, neighborhood organizations, and advocacy groups...Mayor-elect Mike McGinn asked the individuals, as community ambassadors, to go back to their respective constituencies and listen." Thus sayeth the Slog.
But wait- those people already had listened. That's how they got chosen to meet with McGinn- they represented groups that already had discussed among themselves their concerns and come up with things they wanted done.
This is a Stupid Lawyer Trick by McGinn. Arguably not as stupid as those who will fall for it, but really.
Welcome to what may be an ongoing thread of McGinnisms. Folks, we may have a winner.
