Councilmember Gilmore acted as Mayor, seeking legal counsel, prior to becoming Mayor?
“In mid-December, Mayor Gilmore became aware of the possibility of potential litigation against the city and she did contact meyers nave at that time.” – Attorney Edward Kreisberg, meyers nave.

Ms. Gilmore did not become mayor until the evening of December 21, 2010. That’s not mid-December by any definition. So that’s interesting. And it’s interesting that prior to taking her seat as mayor, she anticipated her actions as Mayor would be disruptive and justify lawsuits against the city. Was her discussion, acting as mayor prior to being mayor, with meyers nave legal?
