Nice to see Ms. Craft acknowledge workers and unions. As far as I can tell, the only member of the city council to acknowledge today's celebration is Mr. Ly.

The council's two other supposed Democratic members - Ms. Nguyen and Mr. Suen are MIA. Particularly ironic given the labor money that was used - wasted - in his efforts to unseat Mayor Ly.
