It was interesting to read the newly re-elected mayor felt he had to “work hard” for his re-election.
Considering his opposition, he could easily have taken it easy and still won, thus saving the big dollars that he felt he had to spend in local media to assure his re-election. If he felt obliged to spend all those donations from his supporters, then that’s good, in that he’s supporting local business.
Another suggestion (belatedly) would have been to donate his obviously well-funded campaign funds to some worthy cause such as the skatepark.
When Mayor Dooley makes his campaign expenses public, it’ll be interesting to see what he put out to achieve his large margin of victory, on a basis of what each vote cost in relation to his total campaign expenses.
