The Silly Season

Every election cycle is sure to bring out the ideologues, the rhetoric and an historical review of a candidates actions. One of my favorite hobbies is to catch politicians rhetoric not matching their actions. Some call it hypocrisy. The all candidates town hall revealed that the mayoral race could be entertaining.

Today I'll focus on Charlie Clark. What strikes me here is that Clark criticized city council for needing to spend $50 million on overpasses because of poor planning. Where was Charlie? This was a council that he sat on.

This sudden jolt of fiscal conservatism comes from a guy who is all-in on spending $250 million and $10,000 per month on bike lanes that almost no one uses, causes traffic congestion downtown, and city voters had no say on. It is almost comical to watch Charlie perform as someone who cares about our money.
