The Mayor is (as you can probably tell from the name) the Mayor of Bikini Bottom. Strangely, though, he is (or is an identical twin of) the Mayor of New Kelp City. He first appears in The Great Snail Race, announcing that Lighning Larry was going to light the torch for the race. He then appeared as the Mayor of New Kelp City in What Ever Happened to Spongebob. He is also seen in Drive Thru, telling Mr. Krabs that having a line across town was not okay. In the episode Doing Time, he is seen campaigning for his re-election by opening an unfinished bridge.
