Talking Ed Note:  This will be the most important hospital meeting in recent days as anticipation of a major move to identify a buyer among a group of bidders is forthcoming.

Katie Colaneri confirms a bidder will be brought to the table.  The initial portion of the meeting will begin in closed session as part of an attorney-client discussion.

There’s been echoes of grandstanding recently on the hospital in the City Council even as a miracle could be on hand removing a $52 million bond dangling over the taxpayer’s heads to a buyer by the Council of No Four (Terry Castellano and Mike Russo, with Beth Mason rumored to be freelancing out in the field to gin up trouble.)  Anyone surprised?

Although the public outside of hospital employees have not attended in great numbers, this is one important meeting to come and even speak during the public portion.  Yes, folks are trying to get into the swing of the new year but it doesn’t get any bigger than this.
