Everybody says Mayor Don Plusquellic loves Akron, Ohio. It's just some of the people he can't stand, as he said in March to a packed crowd at his State of the City address.
Now Plusquellic, one of the longest-serving mayors in the country, plans to attend his last ribbon-cutting this weekend.
Soon after that, he is cutting ties with city government. Plusquellic spent decades in office in Akron — he's credited with transforming the local economy.
But he is also called bombastic and a bully, and he recently said he feared that a City Council member might kill him.
