This is kinda-sorta Benny's last hurrah. He's 57 years old and done many jobs around the city. This is the final step up for him. He won't be running for governor although attorney general or lieutenant governor are out there.
In all these jobs Benny had, nothing particularly bad has come out. The worst I can think of was his arrogance in the use of parking in front of 1300. Nothing in his personal life has come out yet. The downside is that he overspends every place he lands. The budgets are all out of whack and the city needs financial stability. This more highly favors Lisa Howze with her background.
So decide people. Do you want less crime or less debt? Oh, there's Duggan and a bunch more running.
