Yea, I just Googled who the VP of the USA was. I intentionally decided I won't pay attention to politics, at least very little. I know I won't be an activist, so why should I pay attention?

I'd rather focus my attention on things I can or will change to better my life.

Ny... guiliani, Bloomberg, di blasio...the names are in the news regularly, so I know them.

My town - wake forest...I can only name one...vivian jones, but she has been the mayor since before I lived in wake forest, so I know 100% of the mayors that have served while I lived here. It is a small town, and I had no need to keep up with the government before I moved here.

My town 2 - rolesville - technically, I live in a town called rolesville (addy is wake forest, jurisdiction is rolesville). The current mayor is Frank eagles, whom I know quite well personally. He has been the mayor for over 10 years...longer than I have lived there. Again, I had no reason to keep up with the mayors before moving there.

I grew up in raleigh. The mayors there going back to the mid 80s were avery upchurch, fetzer, paul coble, meeker and mcfarlane.

1. Koch. Giuliani. DiBlasio.

2. My town has a mayor? I had no idea. I have lived here for 13 years and can't name one. I don't watch local news. Can't help hearing NYC mayor's name 9/11 occasionally 9/11. Did I mention 9/11. Hey folks- I may be a horrible person, but 9/11.

One was a drunk who wrecked so many city vehicles he had to take a cab.

The latest will be running for Governor ( won the Dem primary).

He's a jackass who wasted our money on thousands of speed bumps and tables. He also kept people from rebuilding after the tornado and 

a lot of people lost their businesses because of it.

I don't know if that's sad or awesome, I'm leaning toward awesome simply because I don't live there

Otis ( Al Dupont) was wounded on Omaha Beach when he landed as a medic. A true hero but bad at Driving While Lit  :D

:covreyes:

I can do 3 NYC easily... and that's without naming Rudy.

As for my Village, well... we don't have a mayor.

 

Madison on the other hand... tough to do... in the last 30 something years there have only been 2 mayors.  And I'm not originally from here.  I could, however, toss in the name of one of the mayors from Spokane who was in power when I was in high school there.

 

Most mayors aren't in the news as much as the NYC mayors are, so I wouldn't feel bad if I were you.  


How is it none of you named LaGuardia?

Koch, Dinkins, and Rudy. I could name a bunch from Philly but I'm not there anymore. In Charleston, Tecklenberg and Riley. Riley was mayor for a long, long time.
