From time to time, we are also going to include names from outside of the administration in order for you to understand the connections and some of the reasons for the cronyism that exists. Meanwhile, keep on checking back for updates.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All but one of the above have been Mayor at one time or another. Because we do not have a directly elected Mayor, the Committee selects a Mayor for the coming year, round robin style; and because of how long the Democrats have been totally in power, we are apt to get some of the same failures over and over again!
You see fellow Neptunians, if a Committee person gets elected to several consecutive terms in a row; chances are GREAT that we will be treated to a previously embarrassing Mayor twice.
At least the Republicans ELECTED a Mayor out of the Committee by a majority vote of the Committee. The Democrats play Round Robin Mayor, rotating by the process of the “next person, please.”

Business Administrator Phil Huhn
