Jefferson is governed by an elected Board of Aldermen as well as a Mayor. This unnamed alderman in The Town is the one who responds to Gavin Stevens' request that the town drain the water tank to find the brass Flem has stolen by saying, "I don’t know how much it will cost to drain that tank, but I for one will be damned - " before Gavin cuts him off (89).
