Want to Be Mayor for a Day? Here's Your Chance!

The Clawson Chamber of Commerce will auction off the title this Thursday.

If becoming the mayor of your hometown was one of your childhood dreams growing up, the Clawson Chamber of Commerce is giving you the opportunity to turn that fantasy into a reality.

The Chamber will host a special fall auction on Sept. 20 at Club Venetian in Madison Heights, where one of the many prizes to be won is Mayor Penny Luebs' title.

Though the winner will only be able to call themselves the Mayor of Clawson for one day, just imagine the looks on your friends' faces when you tell them!

Other prizes that will be offered at the auction include sports memorabilia, jewelry, purses, tools and more. There will also be numerous party baskets up for bid.

Guests can enjoy a fun-filled evening that includes a strolling dinner, beer and wine, entertainment, a $3,000 raffle as well as the live and silent auctions.

The cost is $50 for a raffle ticket (149 to be sold), dinner and drinks or $35 for dinner and drinks only. All proceeds will benefit the chamber’s scholarship and classroom grant program as well as various community projects.

To purchase tickets for the Fall Auction, call the Clawson Chamber of Commerce at 248-435-6500 or visit clawsonchamber.com.

Does the City Charter allow this? It is an elected position, not to be sold to the top bidder, even if it is a fund raiser. To me, it is making lite of the Title. Sounds like some thing that would fit in , in Detroit, for many reasons.
