Brad Johns faced health issues this year and was granted an extended leave of absence by the rest of council. He missed several important votes, including the motion to censure Kelly, the most crucial vote on the stadium and the vote on Skye. He has since returned to his regular council duties, but is only slowly regaining his buoyant personality.
For whatever reason, Johns' thoughtfulness is under-appreciated. We look forward to his full recovery, and are hopeful that other councillors will more fully engage him.
Johns voted against the St. Pat's-Alexandra sale.
