Josh Allen for Mayor!
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is such a big hit in the city of Buffalo that he’s actually getting votes for mayor in the city of Westbrook, Maine. There’s only one problem, Allen is not even on the ballot. Mayor Michael T. Foley is running unopposed for re-election. But of course that didn’t stop some voters from deciding to cast votes for the Bills superstar quarterback anyway. This prompted City Hall to put out a statement and emphasize to voters that Allen is a quarterback and not an eligible candidate for mayor in Westbrook.
The city also warned citizens that votes for Allen will be cast as blanks.

If Allen can win the Bills a Super Bowl, you know the sky’s the limit for him after he’s done with football. The 26-year-old isn’t about to leave football any time soon. In the 2021 offeason, Allen agreed to a massive six-year contract extension worth $258 million. The deal keeps him signed through 2028, when he’ll be 32 years old. But if Allen continues to play like this he’ll be in Buffalo until he’s 40.
Buffalo is currently the #1 seed in the AFC with a 5-1 record, thanks largely to Josh Allen.
Allen has completed 66.9 percent of his pass attempts for 1,980 yards and 17 touchdowns against only four interceptions. He’s also been a force on the ground, recording 257 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Allen and the Bills will look to improve to 6-1 on the season when they host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday evening.
Plenty of former NFL players have gotten into politics. Pro Football Hall of Famers Alan Page, Lynn Swann and Steve Largent and Colorado Buffaloes legend Byron “Whizzer” White also entered the world of politics once they called it quits on the gridiron.
Why not Josh Allen?
