Mark Ransom is the current Mayor of Century Station. He has led the city before and after the Daedalus Project. Since then he has been struggling to keep employment in the city and crime off the streets. He is currently under budgeted and can barely afford to pay law enforcemnet employees let alone implement any social programs that might ease the city’s suffering.
More recently a group of conventional energy groups (CI) have been lobbying against him. With this threat of losing his position he has tried to step up progress but to no avail. The city does not think Mayor Ransom is doing a good job at running Century Station, so it is likely he might lose the next election.
