#3. TIE: Mayor Richard Wilkins III (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Probably owing to the fact that he was a hundred year-old demon in human form, Mayor Wilkins was able to reassure an entire city that absolutely nothing was wrong, despite an almost-weekly plague of attacks by the undead. Given that Sunnydale had two high schools and roughly eighty-six cemeteries, this may actually have more to do with the abject stupidity of the citizenry, but you’ve got to hand it to anyone who can put a positive spin on a yearly apocalypse. Also, he carried on a quasi-incestuous relationship with Eliza Dushku circa-Bring it On, back when that meant something.
It’s not really a political statement per se, but before his term was cut short by a tragic/awesome explosion, Mayor Wilkins had announced plans to transform himself into a giant snake-monster. We’re not really sure how that would help cut down on graffiti within the city, but we are pretty certain that it would look pretty kickass on the city seal.
