Mayor McCheese, the retired mayor of the small hamlet known as McDonaldland (1971-2008) and current Forestville resident is considering a run for elective office in Bristol/Forestville, according to sources.
The news comes on the heels of the mayor announcing his reelection bid, and Eric Carlson and Andrew Howe declaring their candidacies for city council positions.
The one time mayor moved to Forestville following his term in office. He currently spends his time feeding birds at the former mall site and reminiscing with friends over coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts.
Mr. McCheese is undecided if he will run for mayor or city council. However, his run is strongly backed by the same Democrats who once labeled him an “unhealthy choice,” but now face a dearth of better candidates.
His tenure in McDonaldland was marred by incompetence and controversy. During his time in office, residents experienced increases in obesity, coronary heart problems, hypertension and diverticulitis. Moreover, the self-proclaimed “law and order” mayor was never able to explain why Hamburglar was never put behind bars.
One Democrat insider is unimpressed with McCheese. “I still don’t know what the hell he did all day as mayor aside from not getting eaten by Grimace. I’m sure that purple lump has plenty of past McDonaldland mayors lodged in his stomach.”
Mayor McCheese is undeterred by the criticism telling supporters Tuesday, “If they (Democrats) will not endorse me, there is always the Working Families Party, don’t you know.”
