EXCLUSIVE: Mamaroneck mayor in 2012?

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.tjndc5-5g39va7goeblu747gio_original.jpg

The story ended up on media outlets all over the country and was even featured on MSNBC on Countdown with Keith Olbermann — 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 “hysterical,” and added “Next stop – Vice President. I do have the glasses.”

She was joking, but who knows? Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska — a city with around 10,000 people. Savolt is mayor of a village with almost 20,000 people.

Hey, it could happen.
