Props to Dean for this find:

Denville, the self-defined “Hub of Morris County” with a busy business district, would appear to have little in common with a small town in Wisconsin.

Yet, the 41/2-square-mile Midwestern municipality of Sparta, population 9,600, has an influential fan in Denville Mayor Ted Hussa.

First you have metal bike commuter, and then Mayor of Denville, Ted Hussa, who has pretty regularly rode his bike to Morristown for the Critical Mass Ride, and at one point I think he told the newspaper that he wanted to be the bike mayor, and was interest… […]
