Did A Utica Councilman Vote to Extend Term Limits to Save His son’s Job?

According to John Byrne, that's exactly what happened. Byrne, a guest on Keeler, said that Coun climax Jack Lomedico told him that he was against the term limit extension, but he had no choice but to vote in favor in order to protect his son's job, as a cleaner at City Hall. Previously, Lomedico had told WIBX that no deals were cut to gain his vote. Listen to the complete interview.
