To Be a Mayor in England in the Spring

London mayor Boris Johnson(who bares a striking resemblance to one of my seminary roommates) had a photo-op yesterday to encourage people to volunteer in their community.  While helping volunteers pick up liter around the River Pool, Mayor Johnson stumbled and fell into the river.

In other mayoral news, Hatlepool mayor Stuart Drummond is standing for his third term.  Mr Drummond, who used wear a monkey costume to support the local soccer team, is now considered to be a successful mayor and Hatlepool one of the strongest local governments.

Who knew that rivers and monkey costumes were such a major part of a UK mayor's life.
