It has been around this time for years, but I sure would appreciate the next Mayor pushing this event until January (like the State of the Union), so as to not appear to be using the office to influence the election.

It would be a shame for “special awards” to go to any of the 8 candidates, because that would really feel like bad politics.

We just got a really fancy invitation to this in the mail. I can tell from the addressing that it was sent to all the Chamber of Commerce member organizations.

Would that as much time, effort and expense were given to important public discussions, formal hearings, etc., as are being dedicated to li’l suzie’s glorious swan song. Methinks it will be triumphal. And both satisfying and gratitude-inspiring to the cheerleaders for privatizing everything not tied down–creates jobs among the friendlies, don’t you know? And work/profit for the buzzing swarm of consultants in every specialty one can imagine. And builds “relationships” for future Project RFP’s (See KBR). Plus there are the “after-benefits” (nudge, nudge, wink,wink).

So, what did she have to say?

She said she is leaving the city “in such good shape” (direct quote). I might have been out of the room and missed any mention of our long term debt and certificates of obligation more than doubling during the past 5 years…

Which raises the question, if tax and spend is bad, is borrow and spend good?

“is borrow and spend good?” Don’t know, the feds have been doing this under both parties for years, and we all know what a wonderful shape the federal government is in.
