I believe that SJ passed on due to injuries suffered from the bus accident at the end of his 4/1/08 call:

Quote from: recap
At this point Tom's yawning is making SJ so tired that he may have to pull over. He's driving a tourist bus on the way back from taking a group of 12- and 13-year-olds to Washington, D.C. to see all the sights. Tom questions his decision to talk on the phone while driving, but SJ thinks it's fine because he can drive the bus with his knees. Tom thinks this is a terrible steering strategy. SJ says he has the phone in his right hand while his left hand dangles his cig out the window. He is only able to keep one eye open due to his exhaustion. Tom thinks it's horribly unsafe, but SJ says it's fun for the kids, who are all asleep because he gave them something: Blue. Tom think it's criminal to provide drugs to young schoolchildren. SJ assures him that the kids are having fun. He disputes the drug charge because Blue is available over the counter ... at one store. Tom says it's still an illegal product, and SJ wants Tom to define "illegal". Tom explains that there are existing laws on the books and these actions defy those laws. SJ does't seem convinced, but he is about to do something that he knows is illegal. He is preparing to pass three slow-moving vehicles on the left, which will force him into oncoming traffic in the opposite lane for a second. Tom doesn't think he can manage this delicate maneuver in a school bus. SJ thinks he can and then screams "Oh my God!" before hanging up.

Oh right.  Thanks Omar.  I forgot about that.  I thought Sleepy Jeff made a fine candidate for mayor.

I was going to vote for Hammerhead but rumors have been flying that Pudge slipped him an Anthrax tape and that he's been listening to nothing but thrash metal in his car ever since.   >:(   >:(    >:(

Let me know if you can confirm these rumors so I can switch my vote to Hammerhead!

SJ RIP. I'm pouring some Nyquil on the ground in your honor, my brother. Get yourself some rest up there in Heaven.

... but if it turns out he survived, I'll be glad to see him back.

This was buried in the back of Section E, but today's Newbridge Herald-Times Republican-Herald had a still photo of Hammerhead walking out of the CD Submarine with a vinyl copy of Budgie's Squawk. He was trying to obscure the cover, but it was pretty obvious if you knew what to look for.

I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Are people able to vote more than once? It doesn't seem like they can.

Please let me know how the voting is working out for you. And if you know how to remedy this situation, please let me know.

Thanks.

Tom.

Tom, I was able to vote for as many candidates as I liked.  But after you vote, you can't vote again.  You have one go.

Also, um, excuse me, but on the May 22, 2007 show, the guy who calls in about Power Pop Pop Pop clearly mentions that Officer Harrips' father was once mayor, but on yesterday's show there was a discussion of past Newbridge mayors but Mayor Harrips seems to have somehow been erased from the canon.  I'd expect this kind of inconsistency from Marvel or DC, but I find this oversight totally unacceptable from the Best Show.  I will require a full refund.

I believe "Whitey" Harrups wasn't one of the more renowned mayors, which may explain his exclusion from the list.

Also, is it Harrups, Harrops, or Harrips? Fotpedia spells it both Harrups and Harrops.
