City Council members are not usually the type to be at social events, but three of the four were basking in the summer fun at the Doheny reception on the St. Lawrence over the weenend, perhaps an indication of their own interests in future city elections.
Mr. Doheny is a city resident and a key player in local politics, something that will only increase if elected to Congress. A Congressman on Paddock Street will be a force in local elections.
Council member Smith ran a close race for Mayor last year. Councilman Butler has made his intentions clear and Councilwoman Macaluso faces reelection next year but may also harbor ambitions.
