In other news, District 3 City Councilman Bates Mattison attended his first council meeting this past weekend, when the city of Brookhaven officially came into existence. Patch asked Mattison about his absences from the first two city council meetings:
"Our family vacation was planned about a year ago, far in advance of the creation of the city of Brookhaven or my campaign for city council. I was sworn into office on Friday, Dec. 7, prior to the initial city council meeting, in order to allow me to participate in council discussions and information while on my trip.
"I discussed the trip with the entire council and mayor prior to leaving, and we were all in agreement that my trip would not hinder the start-up of the city. I assure you that the constituents of District 3 have a far more invigorated council member, having had a chance to spend time with family and reflect on the tasks for the new city of Brookhaven."
