My New Hero…

I want to be cool when I’m old.  I’ve always aspired to be a good combination of Betty White and Cloris Leachman.  I now have a new person to add to this combination as of late.  The Mayor of Mississauga, Ontario “Hurricane” Hazel McCallion.

Hazel McCallion

What is so great about her is that it isn’t even her age that makes her so amazing.  Hazel has served as mayor for 11 consecutive terms.  That’s over 30 years!  Mississauga is currently debt free.  She also won her last re-election with 92% of the votes!  She doesn’t even have to campaign for the position anymore.  She encourages supporters to donate money to her favorite charities instead of her campaign.

Even more amazing… she used to be a professional hockey player.  And she still plays!  Check out this spot from the Mercer Report on her:
