Listen: The Favorite Songs of Patch Town Mayors

Ever wonder what your mayor's favorite song is? Now you know.

Hey, mayors are people, too.

While they're busy running an entire city, they get judged and ridiculed by the people in it, which is an occupational hazard, of course.

But when they're off the clock, or running from meeting to meeting, they jam out to music, too, and we wanted to know what songs they're rockin' in their cars.

Behold, the favorite songs of the mayors of our Patch towns. Are you surprised by any of these songs?
