Watertown Mayor Jeff Graham and City Councilman Jeff Smith, former foes in the November 2011 election, have arrived at a rapprochement.
That's according to Mr. Graham, who beat Mr. Smith by a smaller margin than he won any of his other races.
"My new friend City Council Jeff Smith and I spent time with Parks and Rec brass to discuss what could be done to host the Privateers Hockey Team. It was a productive session," Mr. Graham wrote last week.
There was some concern on the City Council that with a bitter election fight, the duo wouldn't be able to get along and work together. That's not a problem, Hizzoner says.
The lines of attack in the election from the Smith and Graham camps, respectively: Mr. Graham is an old fogey who runs an inappropriate and leak-prone blog, and has not been proactive in leading the city. Mr. Smith is a loose cannon who hates Samaritan Medical Center, bears grudges and would micromanage the city.
