The mayor's closing election ad is an online-only appeal to his base, the workers who can't fund elections but do have an equal vote:
"The job of public servants is to serve the public, not form the core of a mayor’s re-election campaign.
"It’s also not fair to employees. Imagine receiving a call from the mayor, or one of his campaign staffers, asking for a political contribution. And what effect do political contributions have on the mayor’s management of employees.
"If elected mayor, I will immediately work to stop the practice of city employees contributing to the campaigns of the elected officials who manage them or write their budgets."
