Small Town, Big Mayor is a huge joy!
August 3rd, 2017 under Up TV. [ Comments: none ]

I have lived in four cities in my life, and all of them are in the top 20 largest cities in The US. Because of that I have always wanted to live in a small town and get to know all about my neighbors and my mayor. But I have only met 2 of my mayors for a brief second in my whole lifetime.

Well in D’Lo Mississippi, Mayor John Henry Berry is unlike any other mayor in the country. He not only represents his nearly 450 residents, he is at their beck and call 24 hours a day. Like on tonight’s season premiere of Small Town, Big Mayor on Up TV at 9:30p, he gets a call from one of them at 2 in the morning because her fire detector will not stop chirping. He gets out bed, drives over to her house in a golf cart and goes to shut it off. What other mayor would do that?

Talking about golf carts, it is illegal to drive them on the road in Mississippi, and he wants that law changed. He will go to the capitol building in Jackson and ask him to get rid of that law tonight. He makes a lot of good points why they should change the legislation, but will the State Representatives listen to this personable, passionate guy?

He is very passionate about D’lo and he will do anything to make it thrive again. It is nice to see a mayor who cares as much as he does about his town and because of that you will want to tune in every week to see how he accomplishes his 95-point plan to revive his town. Well that and the cast of characters that live D’lo! They are just as yummy as the man the elected to represent their hometown!
