For John, BLUF: Our Mayor is going to explore new areas.
Over at the Gerry Nutter Blog is a report that Mayor Patrick Murphy announced on WCAP that he is not going to run for another term.
I didn't catch the report myself. I am sitting at the kitchen table, waiting for the plumber. But, back to the announcement:
He feels he has made many contributions but it is time to focus on other things and let others have a turn to serve and help their city.I think that statement is just right. And it is time for others to step up and have their turn. Sometimes that "turn" is just about running for office, to keep the others on their toes as our elected representatives, to remind them of their own "mortality".
Thanks, Gerry, and thank you Patrick Ó Murphy.
