Tasked to head the city council's finance committee and make tough decisions that may not always coincide with the Mayor or Carmel Redevelopment Commission's agendas, Snyder has been criticized by Worrell and other oppostion as
"difficult to work with." Worrell doesn't like her "tone" and says he "would offer different behaviors in how (he) would act as a city councilor."
