Davis Love III, the mayor of St. Simons Island, Ga.? He might as well be.
“This South Georgia island enclave as yet has no official mayor, although there is a move afoot to go all municipal. Unofficially, the moss-draped isle and its tonier twin, Sea Island, has someone who acts as an unofficial ambassador and protector of the place,” Steve Hummer of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes in this examination of the city’s favorite son and what Hummer calls “his excellent year.”
