Mayors for individual worlds

It's not an official feature in the game, but a few expansions have introduced new worlds with a premade sim as the mayor, so in my head, almost every world has one now - usually, but not always a played sim in the politician career who somewhat represents the world itself. For example, my Willow Creek is dominated by one big family in particular, so of course someone from that family is the mayor. Oasis Springs is the place where humans first made contact with aliens (I've edited the world itself and its description to reflect this), so the mayor is an alien. The only worlds without mayors are San Myshuno, because I haven't thought of one yet, and Magnolia Promenade, which I view as a district of Newcrest.

I think it would be cool if we had a trait or something like that to appoint one of our sims as the mayor. But of course, there can only be one per world, so if you assign the trait to a new sim in a city that already has a mayor, the previous mayor loses it. What are your thoughts? Do your cities have mayors?

    I would like to appoint a mayor too, especially since they made one for Strangerville it felt fitting to actually have them legit, but I don't think they'd add the ability if I'm honest.

    Tho for San Myshuno if they're still alive one of the Feng couple is a politician I think for rp

    I think I would like them to do it in two ways.
    First,: let us appoint someone. (great for storytellers)
    second: let have an election day where we vote for the mayor of the town we live in.
    you toggle between the two types in the settings area.
    Stop me if you've heard this one: a sim walks into a bar....player moves bar out of the way.....sim walks on without walking into anything else.

    Hmmm... I like this idea. Mortimer Goth is the Mayor of Willow Creek, Nancy Landgraab Oasis Springs, Vlad is the King of Forgotten Hollow (just because) and Judith Ward of Del Sol Valley. I don't have any other packs that add worlds, so no need to bother with those.
