Recently, Mayor Gallo and Corporation Counsel Zweben suggested that Alderman Hoffay has a conflict of interest between serving as Chairman of the Finance Committee and working directly for Kevin Cahill.
I admit it is an interesting question. Maybe it's my training as an attorney, but I see both sides of this point.
What was Hoffay's response? Well, he said, "I think he's an idiot. You can quote me on that!"
His response was extremely unprofessional, but not entirely surprising given Hoffay's political and personal history. Is this really the level of discourse we can expect in city politics from now on? Yikes.
