The Teflon is falling off of Mayor Chavez. Now, he is being seen for what he really is. A typical Mayor like the rest of us that have served in that position with a hostile and ambitious City Council. I have always marveled at how Marty has escaped the scrutiny that the rest of us had from the media and pundits. Mainly, he would just hold an adoption news conference for dogs and diffuse any criticism because he liked warm and fuzzy critters.
Now things are more normal where he has to defend himself from the council's slings and arrows. He shouldn't be upset, nor should anyone, because this is the way the system is supposed to work. It means that compromise must be reached. However, we all know Marty likes things done his way completely.
