It's hard to miss Mary Cooper's bright yellow vintage looking bike as she pedals the streets of Ceciton.
That's exactly what Cooper, Cecilton's town administrator, intended.
She wants people to notice her and talk to her about their concerns or issues.
When Cooper first started the job earlier this year, she noticed that she'd be on the streets of Cecilton in her car several times per week. "I'd be out looking for high grass, untagged vehicles, and making myself accessible," said Cooper. "As I would see folks out, I'd need a place to park to talk to them. With a bike, I'm more accessible."
Chesapeake City Mayor Dean Geracimos had a crying female on his hands recently.
