The mayor had scheduled a press conference for 3:p.m.  The crowd started gathering shortly before hand, calling for his resignation.  Apparently they were fed up with his incompetency in office.  Never mind that he had ran unopposed.  Nobody else wanted the thankless job. The streets were decorated for Halloween.  A Halloween that was spoiled by the fact that the kids couldn’t put on their makeup or spray paint their hair because there would be no water
