“You’re the Mayor guy, right?”
I hear this every now and again and it makes me smile. It means people have remembered what I do, which is nice. But it also means that I’m about to get a story about a civic leader they’ve met. And they’re not usually complimentary.
Which is a shame because I know some great civic leaders and I wish they were the ones getting talked about.
But what I’ve noticed is that there is a common theme to the bad mayors, they all share the same characteristics. In the same way, all good civic leaders are alike. I thought I’d put together an infographic neatly contrasting the good with the bad.
I hope you enjoy it.
