You would think that mayors would care about the citizens of their cities. All too often, that is not the case.
I recently heard an interview of a woman from Los Angeles. Her family has owned a business in downtown LA for over a century. Her business is in a neighborhood that is starting to resemble a third world nation with human waste on the sidewalks and streets. She has tried repeatedly to contact city hall without success.
Many mayors are willing to put their citizens at risk. They defy federal law to put convicted felons back on the streets.
These mayors are not only putting their jobs at risk. They are driving off people that pay taxes to support the cities. That creates a vicious cycle of higher and higher taxes causing more people to leave.
