Not according to Hoyle this time
Leece chose to present the Council with” three names, take them all.” (Or else take time to deal with the openings on the board one at a time.) Her maneuver avoided the risk of losing control of the nomination. As the Council's liaison to the board she could control the nomination this way.
Leece apparently mustered support early since the motion was seconded immediately.
A Mayoral maneuver
Same technique in State venue
An example is the proposed ban on lead bullets because “they cause endangered wild condors to die of lead poisoning.” The assumption is that the condors eat bullets when they feed on offal of game killed by hunters. In reality, most of the lead that kills condors comes from ingested wheel weights and solder drops (from outhouse vents). Some of it may originate in the carcasses they are fed, since the dairy cows’ diets can be high in lead products.
Phony health concern
This post erroneously listed the nominator as Genis; it was Leece. Sorry to Genis and Leece and to the readers. See the meeting video to watch the nomination at about 1:47:06.
