I am guilty of too much talk and not enough homework done this week.
There is indeed a scenario in which Alderman Ron Naylor paid the Ellwood House room rental for a 5th Ward meet-up, even when there’s a “RM RNTL 5TH WARD 1/19/10 MTG” note in the city’s check register. The scenario is more than one 5th Ward meeting having taken place. I mistook the 1/19 meeting for his “coffee,” and did so in error. I am sorry for the mistake.
