It would seem that everyone is interested in politics these days and, for actor Anson Williams, it is something he plans to make a reality.
Best known for his role as Warren “Potsie” Weber in “Happy Days,” Williams announced his decision to run for mayor of Ojai, California at a city council meeting on Wednesday. According to Ojai Valley News, Williams believes the town is in need of “leadership that inspires a collaborative team.”
Fellow ‘Happy Days’ actor Henry Winkler, who played “Fonzie” in the show, immediately endorsed his co-star’s political activities saying, “You have my vote.”

A quick perusal of Williams’ Twitter account @Ansonw4real shows he’s no stranger to making his political opinions known.
In a tweet from May 25, he called Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., “mentally ill.”
Marjorie Taylor Green is lecturing us on mental illness? It’s not the mentally ill in the streets, Marjorie, it’s the mentally ill in power…Lawmakers like YOU!

On March 12, he said that President Joe Biden “needs to place sanctions on Tucker Carlson.”
POTUS needs to place sanctions on Tucker Carlson.

In another tweet dated March 9, Williams claimed that the United States is “an unbalanced nation of consumption that has severely damaged the environment.”
We have turned into an unbalanced nation of consumption that has severely damaged the environment. Victory of greed over compassion will ultimately cause civilizations downfall. Thoughts?

Social media was not thrilled by the announcement of “Potsie’s” political ambitions:
