Here in Annapolis a mayor focused on infrastructure (pothole repair, transit) was voted out for a bread and circuses mayor focused on splash parks, closing streets for block parties, and parades. In the meantime the roads deteriorate, traffic accidents snarl any ability to move around, flooding continues unabated, and taxes go up.
