We hear a lot of nay-saying about projects that get started (or finalized as they should be) as we approach election time. Of course they do. What is the point of electing somebody who does nothing.
I'd almost like to see more frequent elections so more gets done! I do agree that the cronyism is outrageous, and do not by any means support nor condone it. What I do like to see is that the old adage "nothing motivates a man like the last minute" sometimes clears up logjams of projects stymied by procrastination and lack of co-operation.
