“I mean, as far as people calling me the mayor of Taylor Camp, what a joke! The place was anarchy at its best. But I played ball, I was out in the community, I knew a lot of people in government, and it was an easy role for me to fill. I was a political science major in college; I could talk and deal with people, so it was an easy role for me.
But to refer to me in any official way as the mayor, forget it. What I was, more or less unofficially, was the athletic director. I was in charge of the volleyball court. I made sure that we had great sunset volleyball games—that the sides were even. I didn’t have to have the best team. I just wanted to have a good game.” — Rosey Rosenthal
