Mayor Edsel is a human in the Transformers Animated continuity family.
Animatedmayorandaide

I'd like to have a beer with him.

The people of Detroit can always rest assured that Mayor Edsel is looking out for them.

When one considers that his city gets destroyed every week, yet gets rebuilt in time to be destroyed again, he must be a very good politician. When one considers that he is maintained in public office despite his apparent total unwillingness or inability to speak at all, he must be an incredible politician. Or he's got dirt on every other candidate.

He has an aide, who can translate his body language and emotional state for everyone else.

Spoiler jazz

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details for Garbage In, Garbage Out follow.

Because of a contract dispute with Sumdac Systems' new CEO Porter C. Powell, trash disposal in Detroit was halted for a prolonged period of time, leading to public anger at the Mayor. He consented to viewing a demonstration of Powell's new garbage-destroying microbots, and seemed to express a willingness to renewing the Sumdac sanitation contract. But when the aggressive, all-consuming nature of the microbots became clear, Mayor Edsel's mood soured, making a negotiated compromise less likely. Only when Ratchet threatened to throw both Edsel and Powell into the river did the two forge a new deal--sealed, of course, with a silent handshake. Garbage In, Garbage Out
