Mallory's Post-State of the City Briefing

Here's what's going on in the life of Mayor Mark Mallory, now that he's finished with the State of the City speech, which he said he found to be well-received:

He'll be going Wednesday night to the swearing in for Sean Rugless, new president/CEO of the Greater Cincinnati African-American Chamber of Commerce. Rugless emceed the State of the City Monday night.

Thursday, he'll go to the graduation of police recruit Antonio Hamilton, who was hurt and couldn't graduate in December with the rest of the class. The mayor said he thought he should go since he went to the ceremony for the other 49 graduating recruits.

His Young Professionals Kitchen Cabinet has another Arts Allies event Thursday, a 5:30 p.m. open house at Media Bridges.

Regarding John Eby, the Republican from Westwood he chose to introduce him Monday night before the speech: "John is somebody who impressed me a long time ago...I think he's an all-around good guy." Bloggers wondered why Eby was chosen, given that he and Mallory belong to different political parties. Some speculated that Mallory chose him to beef up support from the West Side.

He's still working on the details of his Student Recovery Teams, which he pitched during the speech as help for low-performing Cincinnati Public Schools. He hopes they're in place in the fall, for the start of the next school year. Team members aren't yet chosen. "The idea is to bring an intensive amount of attention to the students who need help."

YAWN...Mayor Zero is back in town again from one of his many trips. Please leave the city as soon as your speech is over.

Eby is and has always been a RINO. Mallory chose him because he likes to be lauded and worshiped. Who better for this than someone like John who is known in political circles as a hanger-on's hanger-on.

Eby and Mallory are a perfect match. Both ineffective, both zeros.
