From the Strib (November 29th),
"Council Member Dean Zimmermann is considered Sabri's biggest supporter on the council, but even he admits to mixed opinions.
"He's come in and developed areas that had been languishing for a long time," Zimmermann said. Both council members acknowledge that they hear complaints about Sabri, but "we also hear he's really great," Zimmermann said.
He said he doesn't think Sabri is much different than many developers working in the city.
Unlike most developers, however, Sabri will be in federal court in St. Paul today fighting for his future. "
[b]The Strib also mentions that the trial may reveal the identity of another city council member who took a bribe from Sabri....I wonder who that could be?[/b]
