I would like to run for Mayor of Empire.
I have an incredible ability to appear honest, sincere and upstanding, while actually being corrupt, devious and dishonest.
I feel that these qualities alone would make me a perfect candidate.

Time for a Change. Vote Shambala for Mayor

You yaggie would make an awesome Deputy Sheriff of Empire. Do you still drive that 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 police cruiser? Awesome car!

Why don't we consider condoing the entire town. Another thing to think about is making the place a time share community. With housing prices so cheap, you could buy a lifetime week in Empire or Gerlach for just $250. (plus $750 annual maintenance fee)

You'd like my biscuits and muffins! Pretty tasty! Ohhh, you're not talking about my baked goods are you!! Beast! Trying to take away my innocence!! I'll tell on you!!

Maybe running it would be a collaberative effort...Or you can run for the office of president of Burnerville!

Sham, I'd think you'd make a wonderful mayor. And I'll personally hire a secretary for you to chase around your desk.

Fishy, I like yours a lot better. Now if we could just get an umlaut or two and maybe an ettsett in there.
