Carl the Mayor vs. Carl the Councilmember
Carl DeMaio wants to be Mayor yet he has done little to address a laundry list of problems his own campaign acknowledges remain at City Hall – all on his watch.
The question is this: What will be different for Carl the Mayor from Carl the Councilmember?
As a member of the Legislative body (City Council), Carl needs only four (4) of his colleagues to join him in rooting out the wasteful city spending he points out took place during his tenure on the City Council. Why didn’t he address these problems as Councilmember? If he were elected Mayor, he will no longer have a vote on the Council – he would need five (5) votes from the Council to push through his agenda. If he couldn’t get four votes while a member of the Council, what makes him think he can get five votes as Mayor?
The reality is this: Carl has had ample opportunity to fix the problems he is a part of at City Hall – and the truth is he has failed.
