It's a sad fact that mayors are "bought" and "made". Bought because whoever has the most money can launch a more effective campaign, while buying followers who will take every opportunity to smear and ridicule the opposition. Made because the media has tremendous influence on who and what gets air time, and manipulate perceptions subtley with their pieces and articles.

If we sit back and let "democracy" do it's work, we'll probably end up with DiIanni. Anyone who doesn't want that better find the most progressive candidate who stands a chance of defeating DiIanni and start showing some support.
