Johnathan Franklin

Is he even in town yet? We’re not quite sure, but we do know this — the Green Bay Packers fourth-round pick, running back Johnathan Franklin, says he wants to be mayor of Green Bay.

That’s not in a figurative way either. Like, he’ll score a lot of touchdowns and everyone will call him the mayor of Green Bay. Franklin has political aspirations. He previously said he wants to be mayor of Los Angeles, his hometown. He was mentored by former Los Angeles councilman Martin Ludlow during his time at UCLA and had an internship where he attended city council meetings and followed around Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Basically, that last part means he watched Antonio ignore the city while he was busy striving for higher office. That’s another story, though. Back to Green Bay.

“Let’s start this campaign for ‘Mayor of Green Bay’ ASAP,” Franklin told “If I fall in love with Green Bay and learn about the history, that might be the city I want to live in for the rest of my life.”

So, yeah. Like we said, he has no idea what he’s getting into. Then again, he’s from Compton — The CPT — so Green Bay will probably look pretty nice.

Franklin will get a taste of Green Bay during rookie camp this weekend. Unfortunately, he won’t be back until training camp due to some obscure rule the NFL has about draft picks and college exams.

UCLA’s term runs through June 14. That means Franklin has to head back to Cali until then. In that time he’ll miss the Packers minicamp and the rest of OTAs.

    DialTone was arriving today. So, Franklin is probably already around.

    If he becomes a star Packer player, then I would say Mayor of Green Bay is actually a demotion from there.

    I’d much rather be mayor of Green Bay than Los Angeles. Hell, I could think of a lot of places I’d rather be mayor of than Los Angeles………..
