I always speak the truth, pretty or not, because it`s crucial to raise issues that aren’t talked about, and then invite bright and reasoned minds to join the conversation. And when we encounter a realistic plan that can help us to achieve our goals, we can’t shy away from doing it if a poll says it may hurt you politically. I will ask all of us to make the difficult adult decisions that we all have to make in our day to day life. Politics should be no different. A Mayor must make decisions based on facts not polls.
