Visionary mayors anticipate criticism and develop responses to it in advance. Visionary mayors develop creative ways to fund crucial investments in the cities they govern. Visionary mayors are in for the long haul, promoting and defending their projects - and their legacies.

As well, visionary leaders have to have an actual vision.

And they have to have a way to share that vision, bringing people on board, generating collaboration...or short of this, be able to strong-arm naysayers into line...inspiring people...which of course means not being a poopy-face.

How many of these boxes can we check off currently?

I'll tell you one thing from my perspective, from what I've been witnessing of late: whatever greatness ends up unfolding over the next three years, it'll only be because it's been foist upon our mayor, not because of any inherent 'vision' on his part.

For our benefit, naturally.

By us.
