Minding the mayor

Posted By on Tue, Jun 24, 2008 at 8:38 AM

I noticed Mayor Mark Stodola couldn't be reached for comment in the D-G story this morning following up on our earlier item about City Attorney Tom Carpenter's opinion that the mayor's salary doesn't automatically rise with that of City Manager Bruce Moore.

Maybe he's at the U.S. mayor's conference in sunny Florida. (UPDATE: No, better still. He was en route to Mexico. after first traveling to Bermuda to testify as a character witness in a trial.) All the same, The Iconoclast ribs Fayetteville Mayor Dan Coody's official trip to the big mayors' party. Interesting note there:

Earlier this year, the U.S. Conference of Mayors winter meeting released a Zogby Poll they commissioned to help mayors get reelected. It said voters believed that "Going Green" would help the economy and improve their cities, so mayors should talk about that at every opportunity. Our Man Dan is a quick study.

Noticed any other mayors talking green lately?
