For a solid two years, at least, it seemed pretty obvious that the former mayor would be challenging the current mayor. We could just see him lurking along the periphery of the local political sphere, trying to influence this or that decision and stack city council with allies. As criticism grew over the current administration's handling of the sewage crisis, it became even more obvious. And here we are, well into the most expensive, most partisan mayoral election in the city's history...for now. —Kate Bradshaw
