No mayor left behind

Who's afraid of Shirley Franklin?

Everyone running to replace her.

At the first city mayoral debate Monday, candidates vying to succeed Mayor Shirley Franklin were asked to grade her performance as mayor.

The average grade was a B+. One candidate, City Council President Lisa Borders, gave Franklin a 90 (A-).

Each of our current mayoral candidates is eager to talk about an aspect of city government they plan to "fix" or "improve," but none is willing to explicitly blame Franklin for failing to fix or improve them herself.

The good news: because of her high marks, Franklin won't be held back to repeat her second term.
