Governor Kenneth Mapp gave a campaign speech. It was supposed to be a State of the Territory speech, but what we got was platitudes, promises and the prideful pretense that we’re doing good and will get even better — if we re-elect him.

Begging for votes definitely is not supposed to be the purpose of State of the Territory speech, which should only tell us truth and facts and put them into the context of what we need our government to do.
