"I grew up in Blogger Holler," the Mayor says. "It was different back then. Mooseville was just a spec, but some of my fondest memories from my youth come from when I lived out there."
Blogger Holler is a quiet place tucked away in the heart of Google Plus County. The community is tight-knit, self-sufficient, and opinionated.
"My new neighbors and I share the same values," the Mayor said. "It might take them awhile to open up, but when they do, I'll be excited to hear their thoughts on matters that affect all Moosevillians, not just those living in the urban areas."
The Mayor says plugging back into the roots of Mooseville has been on her agenda since she ran for re-election last November.
"During my campaign I got out among the people, and my eyes were opened a bit," she said. "They weren't necessarily closed, well maybe one of them was. Regardless, now I'm focused on bigger issues facing Mooseville."
Those big issues include increased traffic congestion and real estate inflation.
"There's only so much space in Mooseville," the Mayor said. "There are lots of things we still need to do to make our town the best it can be, but we can't do that if our residents can't afford to live here."
Anita Pepper, head chef at Mooseville Café, agrees that the rising cost of rent along with the rising cost of food has taken its toll on her business.
"The summertime is hard for us. We've got more tourists in town looking for local flavors," said Pepper. "The demand on MooseJuice root beer alone has put my overhead way over my head."
The Mayor says she's aware of the increased cost of living in Mooseville but has a plan to help alleviate the burden.
"We're going to try to make it up in volume," the Mayor said. "If Anita Pepper has more customers, she'll be able to buy more root beer. If she buys more root beer, MooseJuice Brewery will be able to offer her better price breaks on bulkier buys."
The tricky part of the equation, the Mayor admits, is attracting more people to Mooseville.
"That's why I'm giving up 1600 Moose Street," she says. "A casino or movie theater would be a smarter use of the space. Maybe a concert venue for bands, Broadway shows, or magicians to perform."
As far as getting adjusted to the new living space, the Mayor says she's ready to get more established in the community. Residents of Blogger Holler, on the other hand, are a little less eager.
"She's respectful enough," said Oden Sticks, the Mayor's closest neighbor. "But she's got a lot of cars and practices the harmonica every night. God awful noise. I feel sorry for that dog of hers."
Only time will tell if the Mayor's plan for increasing tourism in Mooseville will pay off. For now she'll just have to focus on settling in and living in harmony with her new neighbors.
