It’s been more than a decade, but former Mayor Joe Ganim has finally apologized publicly for the corruption that drove him from office in April 2003. Ganim said he was sorry at East End Baptist Church for the annual Emancipation event New Year’s Day. Ganim has been making the rounds in an effort for a political comeback for his old job. Many of Ganim’s political supporters had encouraged him to show contrition. This video was posted on YouTube.
The 2015 mayoral cycle could be a yawner or a wild ride. If Ganim gets in, one thing’s for sure it won’t be boring. Joe has support in African American neighborhoods, but will it hold up once Mayor Bill Finch’s political operation unloads on him? Depends on the kind of race Joe runs. Stay tuned.
