Public policy has become standard fare at the Brew Ha Ha on Coffeen Street much as it has at the Mayor's Bar.
Brew Ha Ha Barista and Councilwoman Teresa Macaluso brews up politics too
The powerful and those who think they are regularly approach the window hoping to get a word with an elected official or perhaps to influence a vote. They leave with an earful from the Councilwoman and her voluble yet charming sister Karen.
My experience is staying close to the public is on balance a good thing, especially in the sometimes sequestered world of governing.
