The most interesting part of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s "State of the City" speech Wednesday morning came at the very end. “My passion for Orlando is larger today than it’s ever been and it’s for that reason I will be running for another term as your Mayor,” said Dyer.
A funny thing happened on the way to November. You might recall that Orange County voters were asked to register their feelings on making local elections partisan, thereby moving the elections of wonderful lovers of transparency like Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs to presidential years. More of a fair competition, you say? Voters said no! By about 55 percent, your friends and neighbors said that this wasn’t a good idea, because partisanship is awful.
