Re: “Dear Mayor Savage

I would just like to add one thing - Mike Savage was NOT required to disclose that he paid himself. He CHOSE to that along with his other campaign expenses because he believes in open government. I had the pleasure of volunteering on his campaign and for those of you who don't know this man, and clearly you do not based on some of the comments here, Mike Savage is not remotely arrogant, he is down to earth and genuinely cares about people, and he has more ethics and integrity than most people I know. Mike garnered multi-partisan support and significant campaign contributions (despite being the clear front-runner throughout) because he is that GOOD. People who know Mike Savage knows he stands for what he believes in and that he is going to be a great Mayor.
I think the low voter turn out is appalling. I believe in getting involved in politics, know what the issues are and what the candidates are saying. But I also believe the media basically coronating Mike prior to this election did absolutely nothing to encourage voter turn out, as many just believed he didn't need their vote. Fortunately enough people did take their civic duty seriously and got out and voted Mike to a landslide victory. Perhaps had Mike had better competitors more people would've turned out. Or maybe people are just so apathetic that nothing matters except to those of us who are fully engaged.
