County Executive Pat McCarthy is having a dinner party tonight for the County Council, her executive staff and their spouses.
McCarthy said it’s a purely social affair, and no public business will be discussed.
"I’m trying to develop a relationship with the council," McCarthy said earlier this week. "It’s much better to work through issues when you’ve been able to communicate with people in other ways.
"We’re not going to agree on everything," McCarthy continued. "But we do need to move forward together."
One of the issues they may not agree on is McCarthy decision to hire some of the executive staff invited to the party. We hope awkward silences don’t spoil this party.
