When delivering speeches and addresses, it is essential to carefully pick words and phrases to spread a clear message about how America needed important changes. In his speech, Clinton uses the phrase “eroded our resources,” and by using this phrase, Clinton urges that America needs a change, and it is worrisome if the nation is not taking steps toward that change. Not only does Clinton uses powerful phrases, he also demonstrates his high-level vocabulary to show that he put his thoughts and consideration in his writing and reveals to the citizens that people need to come together and behind him to avoid harmful consequences and to make changes to make America a better place. With this being said, Clinton uses strong diction and establishes his ethos, or perceived persona as a writer. He uses words such as “fractured” and “mustered,” showing his audience that he is intelligent and worth standing behind.

Crundwell explained that money was used for projects to better the city, however, no officials bothered to look for physical evidence of the project.

For a person working for the city, an average salary was $80,000 per year.
