I can’t get a read on this guy Bob O’Connor. Yesterday, he and Police Chief Dom Costa went to Spring Hill to personally oversee and assist in the boarding up of abandoned (we hope) houses in the neighborhood.
At what point during the day does the mayor of a distressed city and the police chief of a city fighting a heroin problem and daily murders say to themselves, “I’m tired of this budget/police work shit. They are boarding up houses in Spring Hill. That is more important than this budget/homicide and I must PERSONALLY go and oversee it.”
On one hand, yeah they are serious about cleaning the city up, but on the other hand, isn’t it all a bit showy and overly cheesy that the Mayor feels the need to not only pick up a drill so the camera can catch him in the act of boarding up a house, but also to pat workers on the back as if they just saved a child from a burning building?
