I may have been to hard on my mayor

on my last post I talked about the fact that the city of Pontiac maybe taken over by the state (which has now happened)

I pointed out the fact that giving the city is expected to be $5 to $7 million debt next year. Which is bad but before the current Mayor took office the city had a about a $37.1 million budget debt

now I feel a little bad for the mayor, even thought the city is in bad shape, at least in terms of being in debt (thought there are other points I disagree with the mayor on) we are in better shape then we where a few years ago but the truth is he hasn't turned the city around enough to actually be in a good situation.
