Not much is know about him other than he had a wife named Renee and was friends with Shawn. His one appearance suggests he was a fairly popular mayor. He liked to surf and, at first, his death was deemed a surfing accident, but Shawn later proved that he was killed by his right-hand man, Jason Straub. He was succeeded in his post by Tom Swagerty.
