They Mayor prerecorded his address this year in a documentary style presentation.

The mayor said the departure from tradition is in an effort to reach a wider audience.

"We need to find a way to better tell this story-to convey through pictures and through video, as well as the narrative behind it-we felt like we could tell that story better," the Mayor said.
