I can't really add anything to this:

"'But, you have to accept that we couldn't have gone to the City [Council before the trip]. We can't go to the City Council today. We'd look like dummies because we don't have it all complete. And we don't want to insult their intelligence -- nor the public's -- by going with something that is not complete.'"

Well done! According to Fran Spielman, the definitely-not-foolish-looking 2016 committee will be sufficiently intelligent and composed to talk to City Council in a couple months.
