I spent the night, John.



You should come back tonight.

Yeah, we'll see.

How do we tackle the drug problem, sir?

Well, as you know,

The drug problem has risen in our city

In the last few years.

It coincides with our growing crime rate

And rising unemployment.

As a matter of fact, in the last year,

Unemployment rose 15.3 per cent

To a total of 24.3 per cent.

Many of the people who are working

Can't make enough to stay

above the poverty line.

Now this situation cannot continue.

Sir, do you have a game plan, Mr. Mayor?

I was hoping you'd

have some ideas about that, Bob.

How's Vice Mayor Archer doing?

Well, I regret to say that, um,

She's not doing too well.

But she's a fighter like

the rest of us in this city.

In the meantime, we're

working on several issues

Here at once,

You know, to get the

city back on its feet.

We have to save our

industry to save our jobs.

Building a hope for tomorrow in my view,

You know, is a beginning to

lower the crime rate today.

And what exactly are you going to do

to get us to that future, Mr. Mayor?

Well, for starters, the big three,

investing in fuel cell development,

As well as more efficient

biodiesel technology.

Green is the future.

And we will be in the forefront

Of the green technology movement.

Yeah, we've all heard

the grand plan before.

When does actual work begin?

The state and the city

Have received a combined

1.3 billion dollars

In incentive grants from the federal

government to get the ball rolling.

So we hope to be making

some announcements

About job creation very soon.

Can you tell us what else

is on the agenda, sir?

Well, we're looking at

new and innovative ways

To provide affordable public

housing in the inner city.

The only problem is Chief Durant

sometimes brings the wrong element in.

And with it there are past rap

sheets, drugs, illegal weapons.

So, Mr. Mayor, what

is the city going to do

About the crime rate?

Bob, good question.

People turn to drugs to get away

from a life that offers them no hope.

Can we really blame them for

a government I'm included...

That has failed them? Well...

It seems like the drug problem

Is a great place to start.

We beef up Ur task force,

Start offering jobs and education

And training in law enforcement.

I believe progress will be made.

Mr. Mayor!

Thank you all very much.

That's it for this afternoon.

Our mayor needs to get back

to work saving our city.

The primaries are coming up and I want

you to get the word out about voting.

Vote, vote, vote for me.

Okay? Thank you for

coming today.

How'd I do?

Perfect as usual, sir.

A little more conviction but

otherwise, a perfect sale.

That bad, huh?

You did fine, sir. Really.

You're a lousy liar.

But I'll buy you lunch anyway.

You're late.

Sorry, sir. There were two

accidents on the way over

And I tried to... Stop.

Stand at attention.

You get a pass this time.

Don't let it happen again.

No, sir. Yes, sir.

Maybe I... for... wh...

The mayor is in his office

working late tonight.

Keep your eye on him,

but don't bother the guy.

Yes, sir. Mmm?

So this is the war room.

It's where you spend most of your time.

Over here, it's where

you watch everything from.

Now, aside from punks

wanting to spray-paint a wall

Or one of the bums wanting

to use the bathroom,

It's pretty quiet around

here most of the time.

Over here...

Here? I'm sorry, Captain.

Now this is for emergencies only.

Do you know how to handle a weapon?

Yes, sir.

I've been an owner since I was ten.

S... sir.

Since you were ten.

Great. Follow me.
