Give him a break already

Yesterday evening Rich David, newly elected Republican mayor of the City of Binghamton, gave his state-of-the-city address laying out his priorities for the coming year. Among the challenges facing his administration is how to repair the widespread damage done to city streets by the unusually harsh winter within the city’s fiscal constraints. It is singularly unhelpful for City Council President, and losing mayoral candidate, Democrat Terri Rennia, to snipe at the mayor’s proposals, especially without offering any alternatives.  As a life-long Democrat, I am embarrassed by her reaction to his speech. The voters elected Mr. David and he deserves a chance to set a course for the City with the support of the council. There will be ample opportunity to call for course adjustments later if he is proven wrong.
