Overly-Attached Mayor

Meet Ted Ellis, mayor of Bluffton, Indiana.

Posted on February 9, 2013, at 8:08 a.m. ET

Via Wikipedia:

Bluffton is one of the first towns...across America, to both publicly acknowledge its history of exclusion and to promote itself as an inclusive town. In 2006, Bluffton was featured in USA Today as an inclusive town that was putting up welcoming, inclusive signs at all local schools as well as at the entrances of three state highways. Mayor Ted Ellis was noted in the article for his helping Bluffton become one of the first to join the National League of Cities' Partnership for Working Toward Inclusive Communities.

I mean, look at that face:

I WANT TO INCLUDE YOU IN MY TOWN!
