READ ALL ABOUT IT! A ROUNDUP OF NEWS FROM THE SPORTS WORLD A Mayor with Muscle
By

(FORTUNE Magazine) – THE RESIDENTS OF Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, will probably think twice before disagreeing with their new mayor. He might body-slam them! The mayor is Jesse ''the Body'' Ventura, a former professional wrestler. He was a break-all-the-rules kind of mat monster. In 1980, he and Adrian ''Golden Boy'' Adonis won the American Wrestling Association world tag-team championship. But Jesse didn't have to put headlocks on voters to get elected. Off the mat, he's thoughtful and articulate, and he has been involved in town environmental issues for many years. Members of the community encouraged him to run for mayor. He campaigned by going door-to-door, and he won the election easily. Being mayor hasn't turned the Body into a wimpy politician. Now he's tough on important issues. For Jesse ''His Honor'' Ventura, being a good guy isn't so bad.
