Meet the Mayor: Cyclorama

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

The War on Christmas: liberal conspiracy, or figment of conservative imagination?
I don't like it. I guess there was some senator - I can't remember what state it was, but they had the big lighting of the tree at the state house, and he called it a holiday tree. It's a Christmas tree! You're not going to say, "This is a holiday menorah," if you're lighting a menorah.

I have a holiday menorah at my apartment.
Do you have red and green lights on it, just to be really PC?

... Kind of. Yeah.
I mean, to each their own. I just don't like not being able to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hanukkah" or "Happy Kwanzaa."

The commercialization of Christmas: how awesome is it?
It's awesome and horrible at the same time. It's nice walking through Newbury Street in the Christmas season, when all the stores are decorated. On Christmas Day, I don't really care about the presents. I just want to be with people who are important to me. However, I do like getting things. And I do love Christmas movies. I watched The Muppet Christmas Carol last night. It's amazing.
