Actually, the deputy mayor does all the work, while the mayor gets
all the credit.

Callie will have the job, but only until the next election. She's a
hard worker, and does a great job of keeping things running, but
she's clearly no politician, and wouldn't stand a chance of getting
elected. Sad but true.
