Didn't they both vote to pass the bloated budget? If they were so against going over the 2% tax cap, why did they vote to raise taxes over 9%?????
Because had they NOT voted that 9.2%, it would have defaulted back to Palmieri's original budget of 18+%. Both Vescera and Zecca did the right thing, and qualified their vote.
Remember it was the rest of the chicken council that bawked and whined about Vescera and Zeccas proposal that would have implemented a 0 tax increase. But as usual, Russ Brooks played most of them.
