Add Mayor Wasserman to list of people who think Vinnie Bacon probably would be on the City Council right now had he not decided to team up with Kathy McDonald. He said the two incumbents “lucky” Bacon made that decision.
As for ranking Bacon second out of the six finalists, Wasserman said, “He worked very hard to get elected. I think he’s sincere in wanting to contribute.”
The mayor said he might appoint him to a commission, but didn’t say which one. I think something like the Recreation Commission is more likely than Planning.
