Sable: "McGinn Fails To Bring It- Again"

It’s no secret that Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn has struggled since taking office at the beginning of the year.

He upset city council- and a lot of residents when he announced a plan to replace the seawall.

A group of well organized city employees started their own website when the Mayor announced he was going to give them the axe for reasons that were questionable at best.

The biggest blow to the administration came when local political blog Publicola published a damning report about one of McGinn’s top advisors who lied repeatedly about his academic credentials.

His state of the speech last week was so underwhelming, his own staffer told him he looked like an un-made bed. Ouch.

The mayor insisted to a room full of journalists a few days later that the criticism he is getting is not about substance, but about style.

It’s both. Substance and style aren’t mutually exclusive- especially when we’re talking about politicians.
