I had a dream the other night about our city mayor.

You ask me why I'm putting something about a dream in this category? It's because it was about our mayor, that's why. My dream went like this: I was his trip coordinator or something like that, and I had booked 40 rooms in a hotel for a group of politicians or something like that. We went to the hotel by school bus. Don't ask me why, but I guess that it was his way of trying to save money. However, when we got to the hotel, we were told that it was overbooked by 20 rooms, and he hand picked who he wanted to stay in the hotel. The rest of us had to sleep on the bus, and it was winter time. There was no heat on the bus. After a while of trying to sleep, I decided that this was so wrong on so many levels, and went into the hotel to try to clear it up. The manager of the hotel was at the front desk, and when I asked him to look into it, he said the mayor had canceled the rooms and had taken the refund on his credit card. I turned around and said that what he did was theft. I showed him the reservation paperwork that I had. He then called the mayor's room and asked him to come down. The hotel was not overbooked, and he would make sure that the rest of us got our rooms. When the mayor got down there, I could see the look of guilt on his face, but he played dumb until the manager told him what his computer showed. It showed the mayor canceling the rooms and taking the money on his credit card. I then piped up and told the mayor to pay for the rooms again so the rest of us didn't have to suffer out in the bus. After hesitating for a few minutes, he finally did. And that was that. The thing is, I wouldn't put it past our mayor to do this in real life, afterall, he has been accused of using office staff, city staff cell phones and city vehicles to help him with his charity football team. Why would he not pull a stunt like the one in my dream?

I don't feel that way about him, in fact, I support him 100%. Many people hate what he's doing in our city, which is running it better than the other mayors in the past have done. He's done more good for this city in about a year, than any other mayor has done in 4-8 years!
