Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor

The Contra Costa Mayors Conference elected Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, the man probably best known (after Bob Dole) for referring to himself in the third person, as its 2009 chairman.

He succeeds Walnut Creek Mayor Sue Rainey. The Mayors Conference has been around since the 1950s and includes mayors of each of the county’s 19 cities. They meet monthly in a different city, and feature various speakers.

Taylor is a bit of comedian, so you’ll enjoy his acceptance speech below.
