Recently,  City Commissioners and the Mayor have been told they have been “asleep at the wheel” and that their priorities are “out of whack.”

These are not the words of Erwin Jackson, frequent City Commission critic.

These are the words of current City Commissioner Scott Maddox.

Could these comments be the beginning of Maddox’s campaign for Mayor?

When Scott Maddox entered the race for the City Commission seat vacated by Mark Mustian in March 2012, most everyone knew he wanted to be Mayor again.

As one supporter put it “after you have been Mayor, a candidate for Governor and other statewide offices, you do not settle for a City Commission seat.”

But it is late May and City Commissioner and Mayoral candidate Andrew Gillum has raised over $200,000 and Maddox has yet to enter the race.

What happened?
