The Office of the Lord-Mayor is one of the two ruling bodies of Magnimar alongside the Council of Ushers though in reality due to the constant internal squabbling amongst the council the Lord-Mayor is by far Magnimar's most politically powerful person. The current Lord-Mayor is Haldmeer Grobaras an embodiment of the very worst abuses that can come from such a position. Haldmeer has claimed the largest residence in the city, Defiant's Garden as his own, he wears only the finest and most expensive Chelaxian fashion and makes many important decisions based almost entirely on the quality of the bribe each side offers him. In theory the Lord-Mayor has to obey any mandate agreed upon by the Council of Ushers, the current mayor has however completely ignored council mandates on several occasions. The Lord-Mayor is allowed to issue his own mandates to deal with important and immediate issues, these decree do not have to be approved by the council. Haldmeer however has abused these powers using them to issue horribly biased and sometime downright damaging decrees. The only thing that has prevented the current mayor doing far more damage to the city is that his assistant Valanni Krinst, the man who has to actually implement the Lord-Mayor's decrees ignores or alters many of them.[1]
