Mayor Bing is not a strong leader

If Mayor Bing was to run for mayor in the upcoming election, would you vote for him? Why or why not? No. He hasn’t done anything that he said he was going to do. How has the city gone bankrupt?

I would like my next mayor to bring growth to the city and carry out what he or she says in their campaign ...
