Check out this YouTube video on this mayor from Canada. She’s been mayor for 31 years, is 81 88 years old, plays hockey, and runs her city debt-free with $700 million in reserves.
I haven’t done any fact-checking, so I’m not sure what the “other side” of the story is, but I’m not sure I care. I would vote for her. Doesn’t look like her city is in need of a bailout.
