The Source: New Mayor, New Agenda

Aug 11, 2014

When Ivy Taylor took the reins as mayor many thought it would be business as usual, and the 10-month term was a placeholder intended to increase the council member's credibility and visibility for a future run in another body.

Now, less than two weeks into her term, Mayor Taylor has pulled the plug on streetcar. She says she wants a delay to commercial storm water drainage fees, and she is squaring off for another round of tough negotiations with police and fire over health care and pension costs. 

What will the legacy be of Mayor Taylor?
