Mayor Baker: Mom says no to Mohawk



ST. PETERSBURG-- Mayor Rick Baker announced last month he would get a Mohawk if the Tampa Bay Rays won the World Series and his wife signed off on it.

But Baker says another lady in his life, his mother, has already told him not to do it.

"Ricky," he recalled her saying, "don't you let them give you a Mohawk. That's not mayoral. The mayor shouldn't have a Mohawk."

And that's that. "Mom has spoken," he said.
