A mayor that is not influenced by big money and is truly interested in the betterment of the city and the community he/she serves

I think it takes three parts. A viable mayoral challenger, a courageous (or at least not terrified) political class, and an energized and educated electorate in the city. I've been reading Slay's campaign reports, and most of the people giving him money can't vote for him - the don't live in the city. Money can't buy votes (well ....) but it can terrify challengers. It has.

Comprehensive planning, zoning and economic development and a mayor that listens to his advisors in each discipline.

A real mayor. Not Irene Smith or Maida Coleman or Francis Slay, but a hard worker who is smart and democratic.
