Mayor Tom Leppert: "Perhaps One of Our Greatest United States Leaders." Who Knew?
Since becoming mayor less than two years ago, few have enjoyed the success of Tom Leppert. First a key victory in the Trinity River toll road campaign, then two more big wins last week after defeating two charter amendments, and now his very own commemorative ceramic tile.
Even though we're always on the lookout for a way to pay homage to Mayor Tom, imagine our surprise when we stumbled on this item posted to eBay by Edison Clay Company of Fort Myers, Florida.
We've sent an e-mail to the seller to find out how Leppert's fame made its way to Fort Myers. In the meantime, pick up as many as you can because there are only 1,000 available and I plan to buy enough to tile Schutze's bathroom.
