He hopes MTV ends the show...
The Mayor of Charleston, West Virginia has called on MTV to cancel the planned second season of Buckwild following the death of cast member Shain Gandee. TMZ reports that Danny Jones, who is the mayor of the city where the show is filmed, wants the network to cancel the show and called Gandee's death just one of the problems.
Jones said, "Of the few cast members on the show already two have had legal issues and now one has died. The show only enhances the negative stereotype the Kanawha Valley already has. I hope the show's life is short."
In addition to Gandee's death, Salwa Amin and Michael Burford were arrested in seperate incidents for substance issues; Amin was busted in a drug raid and Burford on suspicion of DUI.
