Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides thought winning election as a Republican in a Democrat-dominated city would be hard. "The entire state was against me," he said. Governing has been even tougher. In the five months since his 59-vote victory, Pantelides has dodged an effort to cut his powers, fired several staff members and accepted resignations from several more. He's faced complaints about a lack of diversity in City Hall and endured a public flap after he was caught passing a profane note to an alderman.

Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides and members of the new city council are still figuring out which issues to attack now that they're in office. But one thing is clear: Don't expect a proposal to weaken the mayor's power. Alderman Ross Arnett told reporters Thursday that he won't introduce legislation that he floated last month that would weaken the mayor's power, making him little more than the chairman of the council, and putting more authority in the hands of the city manager. Arnett's proposal became public shortly after the November election and led to a backlash against the alderman, especially because he is a Democrat and the new mayor is a Republican.
