"If You're Not At The Table, You're On The Menu"

Retired city employees want a chance to sit in on the meetings of the pension board--because, as Common Councillor Susan Fullerton put it, "if you're not at the table, you're on the menu."

Mayor Mel Norton says as he understands it, the retirees can sit in on the meetings but they can't participate.

The composition of the pension board was determined some time ago, so in his view it is a bit of a moot point to meet now and explain it again.
