Last week, we reported on the hullabaloo about Mamaroneck mayor Kathy Savolt’s attempt to get a ticket thrown out of court she got after being caught for driving while talking on a cell phone.
The story ended up on media outlets all over the country and was even featured on MSNBC on Countdown with Keith Olbermann â€” a Tarrytown native.
With all the national attention, I asked the mayor, jokingly, if she was shopping around for a book deal.
She e-mailed me saying the coverage was â€œhysterical,â€ and added â€œNext stop â€“ Vice President. I do have the glasses.â€
She was joking, but who knows? Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska â€” a city with around 10,000 people. Savolt is mayor of a village with almost 20,000 people.
Hey, it could happen.
