'I've had enough!' Councilor at Large Stephen Murphy snapped, waving a piece of paper at his colleagues."

"Team Unity", mentioned in this article, is an alliance of the minority members of the City Council (Yoon, Arroyo, Turner, and Yancey). Here are a few references:
Yoon gets endorsement from councilors of color
At-large city council candidate Sam Yoon got a boost this week with an endorsement from Team Unity, the political organization formed by incumbent councilors Felix Arroyo, Chuck Turner and Charles Yancey.

Days before the council was set to approve next year’s operating budget, Yoon circulated a document saying he and his Team Unity colleagues (Chuck Turner, Felix Arroyo and Charles Yancey) would torpedo the budget unless the city committed an additional $4 million to summer jobs and youth services.
