Seattle, WA

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn

I believe it was one of his campaign pledges to bring fourth a faster broadband internet access, now he's selling off every last bit of it.

This goes along with the last pledge in which he said he would honor the agreement met by the city council (to replace a waterfront elevated highway with a tunnel) and not attempt to block its construction. Within weeks of being sworn in, he led a campaign to block the tunnel project, which utterly failed.

All the mayor cares about is pushing light rail / street car transit and more bike lanes (but make drivers pay 100% of it). He's a one term mayor that really doesnt care about anything else.

Maybe the next mayor will have a spine.
