While the highest standards are reserved for city-operated accounts and pages, the policy also limits offensive comments on personal accounts, especially posts that could reflect negatively on the city. “This is an existing policy,” he said about concerns that it curtails free speech. “I’m not sure there has been an instance where people have been stifled.” During discussion, Council Member Michael Wojcik took the opportunity to point to a case in which Council President Randy Staver sent Planning and Zoning Commission Chairwoman Lindsey Meek a letter regarding a post she made on Twitter. Wojcik, who cast the sole vote against the policy revision, raised the question of oversight regarding board and commission members. “If they are recommended by the mayor, then the mayor would be the one to take action,” City Administrator Stevan Kvenvold said. As a result, Wojcik said, the policy change makes Staver’s letter to Meek inappropriate. “Bottom line is none of us get to individually reprimand volunteer board members,” he said, noting he still has concerns about the mayor’s potential ability to remove some board members without council approval. Council Member Nick Campion acknowledged he’s not completely comfortable with the policy and will advocate to its removal if it’s used to stifle free speech. However, he offered additional changes to clarify the policy and note that obscene and racially charged comments are not acceptable in any posts, whether on city-operated or personal accounts. “As long as we are going to have one, I want it to be the best possible one for everyone,” he said. Council Member Ed Hruska said the goal is to establish a policy that is “generally right” and can be changed if concerns arise.

But top seller Remicade, an injected biologic drug for Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and other immune disorders, saw sales decrease 6 percent to $1.7 billion. Near copy, or “biosimilar,” versions of Remicade have cut into its sales in Europe, where they’ve been available for much longer than in the U.S. Caruso said the launch late last year of Pfizer Inc.’s Inflectra, a biosimilar of Remicade, has had little impact on sales in the U.S. Doctors there are hesitant to prescribe biosimilars, which are relatively new to the U.S. market, for patients doing well on Remicade. The Tylenol maker’s consumer product sales rose 1 percent to $3.3 billion, while sales of medical devices and diagnostic equipment increased 3 percent to $6.3 billion. “The company performed mediocrely in two key areas pharmaceuticals and consumer products. It managed expenses well, but to continue to increase profits, it has to generate better sales increases,” Erik Gordon, a professor and pharmaceuticals analyst at University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, wrote in an email. J&J reported spending in the quarter rose only a percent or two for manufacturing, marketing, administration and research and development. “We believe J&J has a solid new drug pipeline, which, along with the Actelion acquisition, should support long-term growth,” Edward Jones analyst Ashtyn Evans, who has a “Buy” recommendation on J&J, wrote to investors.
