The second bill would remove two mayoral appointees from the Board of Public Works. There are currently five members: the mayor, the city solicitor and Public Works director (both of whom the mayor can hire and fire), the comptroller, and the city council president. A three-member board would check the mayor's control of city spending. That bill was originally passed by a 12-1-2 vote, with Mosby voting "no" and both Scott and 14th District Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke abstaining. Tonight, Clarke voted "yes," along with Young, Henry, Welch, 6th District Councilwoman Sharon Green Middleton, 8th District Councilwoman Helen Holton, 10th District Councilman Edward Reisinger, and 12th District Councilman Carl Stokes.
