A week ago the Mayor was saying he was going to run for reelection because he could do more as Mayor than as a United States Senator. Now (see Gary’s post below) he says the Mayor doesn’t have enough power.
This proves one thing: Mayor Meeker’s lost control of the City Council. His solution is to put more power in his hands. Then he can ignore the Council. But consider this: five of the seven Council members, like Meeker, are Democrats. Maybe the real problem, and why the Council voted down the Mayor’s roundabouts on Hillsborough Street, is they weren’t such a good idea.
