Whilst not evil, neither can he be said to be "good". His regard for his city and its citizens is primarily directed as to how it affects himself. He is conspicuously cowardly, opportunistic, and to a degree rather lazy, but in his own way is a consumate politician. Whilst not a particularly virtuous individual, in most situations he is able to direct the public view to a more positive light during a crisis, although many times his assurances are almost instantly proved to be premature. He has a habit of leaving the real work of his office to Callie, the deputy mayor.
A huge golfing enthusiast, he is frequently seen both in his office and outside playing golf, even during a crisis, and a long running gag in the show is of his games being thrown off by the SWAT Kats battling a villain in the proximity.
