  1. About 40 people (mostly Ward 3 neighbors) at this open house to meet Councilman Durham, all his staff, and talk with City officials, mostly police officers from midtown. Delicious food from Juanito’s near Oracle/Grant was served. Steve Farley’s campaign staff there tonight as Councilman Durham endorsed him for Mayor this week, over his colleague Councilwoman Regina Romero.
