I've interviewed all the characters in my book Norman For Mayor except for Norman, so now it's Norman's turn. Let's get started. Norman what made you want to run for Mayor of a small town in the first place? Norman's reply was "That when he heard a Dog and a Cat were the Mayor's of his town, and he knew the problems that excised in the town, he thought he could help by fixing the problem. A Mayor has a lot of power to make things right for it's people. Norman, you really got your team together fast, and I was just wondering how in the world you did it? Norman began by saying, "I just asked all my friends if they wanted a job that they could all do very easily. I had a job build just for each personalty. Norman went on to say, here's the list of my team, and what they are capable of doing. The Lamas, Lance and Mighty Moose campaign managers, it suits them because they always have there heads together figuring out something. The Donkey's, Sylvester and Jack Jack the Maniac, as speech writers. Because they are so vocal, it's right up there alley. The Goats in the Hood, as body guards. This is a no brainier, THE GOATS IN THE HOOD!!! Need I say more. Fancy Dan, as a personal assistant. Who else, with the way he walks and talks. All these jobs are in there "wheel house" of talents. They all jumped into action immediately, that's how we got it going so fast." I told Norman that I loved what his campaign came up with as slogans:
1. I don't get fleas
2.Flies hover around me because they like me.
3.I won't claw the furniture.
4.I don't bite.
And the biggest reason of all is that,
5.If there was a stamped of cattle though town I speak their language!!
I could stop them in their tracks. MOO!
I also asked Norman how he dealt with the mud slinging that had gone on. This was his reply. "That it was very hurtful to him. He would never do that to anyone ever. I am who I am and can't change that. I was out to build up the town, not tear it down. I sent everyone out to do good things for the town and stayed true to who and what I am. That's how I won and became Mayor Just by being myself and not slinging mud back at them." Norman is doing a great job as Mayor and everyone has said that crime is down and are working together to make it a great place to live.
Thanks to Norman for a great interview and Norman's whole team for there time.
Take Care and be safe.
