Yippee! The city has a new mayor

When the former mayor introduced Dog Tax he basically cooked his own goose. The other bewildered civic leaders must have felt this was untenable.

I mean 80% of city folks own dogs that have no discernible breed identity. Dogs with pit-bull eyes, Rottweiler legs, basset hound hindquarters and German Shepherd hearts are all too common and the people of GC are unlikely to want to pay tax for dogs they refer to as ‘my dog’ and not with a measure of pride like ‘my Great Dane’.

So I suspect this is when the plan to pull the rug from under his feet was hatched. There must have been a suspicion that residents will disown dogs and they will roam the city making it difficult to do anything other than police dogs and shoo them off the streets.
