    We simply need a mayor to do the job; no show-boating necessary. No matter who the mayor is, if that person surrounds themselves with the right people our borough will flourish and future elections will be a breeze.
    If the mayor surrounds himself with people who are just owed favors or others without attention to ability then it will be a short run for any mayor.
