Missing The Mayor
For the Larger part of the past two work weeks, the mayor has been missing in action in his corner office at city hall.
The mayor’s parking space in front of city hall is perfectly, exquisitely empty nearly all day every day.
We understand the mayor has been ducking phone calls and meetings.
Not wanting to be at his desk at city hall is explainable.
Who wants to work in August when you can be swimming in your gorgeous backyard pool behind his mansion?
Let’s face it, not much gets done during August.
But he’s the mayor.
He got elected to work just like we do.
Many people, including his supporters, expect him to be there or at least to be doing something, anything.
“He has no work ethic. Where is he?” said one of the mayor’s close supporters recently.
“I’m up early and working hard everyday? Why isn’t he?” his friend said as a matter of fact.
What does the mayor do when he is not at his desk in city hall during the summer months?
Is he watching the Red Sox? Doubt it.
