Don't drag anyone else down because of Joy and Bob. Find another way to fight them.
For the good of the City, and now I guess for the Love of God....
Please. Talk your Mayor into resigning. It can be done gracefully. A man his age, can say it is for reasons of his health. Everyone will believe it...or at least we will all pretend it is true.
He can keep his pension. No jail, no investigation, no dishonor for anyone. Maybe even name a bridge after him or something.
And everyone can drop all these expensive and pointless lawsuits, OK?
And we can start to heal.
