 Mayor Dave on state of the city: What, we worry?

Mayor Dave Cieslewicz began by promising that he would not make a speech and boy didn't he ever. For 19 minutes at Tuesday's Common Council meeting, he laid out an assessment of the challenges facing Madison and some approaches he'd like to pursue. His organizing device was a simple outline. He was never flashy or pompous, and aside from one reference to doing "a lot more better" -- "that's what I get for not making a speech," he joked -- came across as effortlessly articulate. >More
