Mama for Mayor!
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mayor Tutwiller is now Ellen's boyfriend. They are a perfect match. She gets Mama to have a press conference at her home with the Mayor, the press, and the Seniors. Mama makes some comments regarding the Mayor's lack of leadership and ends up as a front-running candidate for Raytown's Mayor. In this episode, Fran cooks up a great theme song with everybody in the family helping out except Ellen of course who believes her mother can't handle the job like her boyfriend who has interests in becoming Governor someday. There is even a debate and Mama has a book about running for president. Of course, the episode ends with the election results which by then, Harper House has all fallen asleep.
