Verb usage


In the sentence "Neither the council members nor the mayor supports the new parking restrictions." Why is "supports" the correct verb to use?

While technically correct, I believe the sentence would be more readable if both subjects and the verb agreed in number:  Neither the mayor nor the council supports the new parking restrictions.
