— The first Raleigh City Council meeting of 2016 kicked off in a fashion not dissimilar from its 2015 sessions: an invocation by the Reverend Paul Anderson, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance led by newly elected District B councilman David Cox.

Mayor McFarlane began the meeting by thanking staff for the newly installed video screens and presentation technology.

"We've upgraded from our rolling cart and overhead projector," McFarlane observed.

"Thank you so much for bringing us into the new century."

    Their tech equipment/toys should never be better than the ones our children have to use in schools. If they are, someone's priorities are skewed.

    New equipment pieces to present clearly the need for new projects and ideas for implementation are not "toys".
