The mayor’s belated filing

“Mayor Anthony Silva has filed his required campaign finance disclosure form, more than two weeks after the deadline.”

—A story in today’s paper.

You can be sure the mayor did not files these papers because they are legally required. He ignored the legal deadline. He filed them because blowing them off as is his habit was generating bad press.

That’s what Silva really cares about: his image. That, and the politics of re-election, and seeking the Strong Mayor authority. the real issues, crime, homelessness, jobs, downtown redevelopment and Stockton’s other crying needs do not elicit leadership from him. But bad press he reacts to immediately. When there is no substance, paramount is spin.
