Before he began his first
week, Mr. Tauber moved into a
temporary apartment down-
town. He and his wife, Laura,

in the Palmer Woods neighbor-

Tauber said. "He told us to
make a deal."
The past week was "surreal"
for Mr. Tauber, who first tried
his hand in politics as a sched-

campaign while he was a law
