It was another State of the City speech. Having sat through more than 40 years of such speeches in different municipalities the last thing I wanted to do is go to another. Yet this one has some back story, mainly that not long ago Mayor Steve Fulop decided he's not running for governor but for re-election.

There was some curiosity about how he would approach this declaration of how things are going in the city and what would be the public response. What it revealed to this writer is that, after months and months of running an undeclared statewide campaign, a local race seems pretty easy. The mayor just can't throw his election machine into third and second gear. The battery is still fully charged and he and his team are driving a classic Ford GT in cruise control waiting for the go-kart race to start. ... a_bonus_for_re-elect.html
