I've sort of followed the mayorship of Sam Sullivan of Vancouver. In fact, I saw him in person last fall during the Totems to Turquoise exhibition at the Vancouver Museum.

He's not your typical mayor. Paralyzed from a ski accident as a teenager, he now lives his life from a wheelchair. But his lack of mobility doesn't slow him down.

Here's a personality profile that ran on the front page of Sunday's Seattle Times. He's a politician to keep your eye on.
