Mayor Miller’s important announcement was on the budget
Speculation his press event was on his future, was false
By Kris Scheuer
I was in the very packed, hot (temperature-wise) Mayor David Miller’s office this morning for his widely anticipated “important announcement”.
Because everyone associated with the press conference was so tight-lipped about the subject manner not even offering the topic, it was speculated Miller was going to say he was running for re-election OR stepping down sooner than the end of this term. Not so.
It was to announce the city has $100 million more (above the $250 million surplus) in revenues than perviously thought.
I will report back later with my story for the Town Crier newspaper. For now, read his speech for yourself for the details.
