While in Jefferson County for a birthday dinner for his gal pal Darlene, Maple City Mayor Bill Nelson stopped by Pearl Street and posed with a couple of cardboard stand-ups....one of which is the Dos Equis Beer spokesman, known in the commercials as "the most interesting man in the world."
Clearly, the four-term mayor enjoyed the comparison and he will have to prove himself interesting if he ever does launch an Assembly bid as is rumored from time to time.
Hizzoner made an excellent choice for dinner......The Café Mira in Adams.....He has a second reason to celebrate. Starting in December, the Big County's local sales tax goes up by a third and so does the Maple City's cut, meaning a sure property tax cut in the 'burg next year.
Known as "Landslide Bill" due to his two most recent razor thin reelection bids, Mayor Nelson is also prominent on the state scene as President of the NY Conference of Mayors.
