Browsing the magazine rack at the airport bookstore I saw Mike Coleman on the cover of Columbus Monthly. The headline read: PERSON OF THE YEAR.
The actual article, written by Dan Williamson, was sufficiently interesting. But I was kind of surprised that he thinks Coleman deserves person-of-the-year status for his “bold and decisive action to seize control” of City Center.
For starters- this wasn’t even Mike’s idea. He did it in response to a challenge (“Mr. Mayor: Tear Down This Mall”) from Bill Todd , the Republican candidate trying to unseat him as Columbus Mayor.
I agree that Mayor Mike is probably deserving of the title- but I would have given it to him for the amazing job he did downplaying and escaping from the during-campaign scandal involving his wife and her drinking problem and theft of state money/resources.
Now THAT was a quite a feat!
