MOUNT WASHINGTON -- A voice for the people.
That was former Mount Washington mayor Sidney Edward Griffin’s go-to campaign slogan and it was one he never lost touch with.
Sid, as most knew him, moved to Mount Washington around 1958. Not long after, he was asked to serve on the trustee board, similar to today’s city council. From 1961-1968, he served with five others to run the city. He lost the race to become the city’s first mayor, but won two years later. He held the title from 1969-1981.
