By the toss of a coin. Could P.G. politics get any weirder? Good news for chicken owners. Only the losers supported Kampe.
Few members of the public were present when City Attorney David Laredo tossed the coin about 9 p.m. It landed tail side up, in favor of Garcia.
The council was split 3-3, with Garcia supported by council members Alan Cohen and Lisa Bennett. Councilwomen Vicki Stilwell and Deborah Lindsay backed Kampe.
After voting three times, with the same result, it was clear that neither Kampe nor Garcia would step aside, and their supporters would not be swayed.
