The Mayor has been attending four to five events per day.
Is he attending as the Mayor or is he campaigning? How do you realistically separate the two?

Should all elected officials be punching a clock and tracking their 'overtime' for four years so that when campaign time comes around they can say they are on 'lieu time'?

I do agree 100% about the accountability, I am just honestly trying to figure out how you would enforce it. It's just a sad reality of politics that an incumbent is always going to have the advantage - even based on name recognition alone. There are always going to be voters that are not engaged in the community and check of the box of the incumbebt thinking "he got voted in last time so he must be doing a good job". Are they accountable too?
