The hour has come. We have established a quorum. I'd ask all Councilmembers to please take their seats and ask the guests and visitors to please retire behind the rail. Thank you very much.
To give our invocation this morning, the Chair recognizes the Reverend David Friel, Pastor of St. Anselm's Roman Catholic Church. He is here today as the guest of Councilman O'Neill.
Before I ask all guests and visitors to please rise, Pastor, I got to believe you are the youngest pastor we have ever had in here today. I've heard that your wisdom and your spirituality far surpasses some people who are much older than you. So we really appreciate you coming down today.
I'd ask all guests and visitors to please rise.
