Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor followed through Saturday on his promise to undergo a public basting in a turkey suit to benefit the Brentwood Regional Community Chest.
Taylor's promise has resulted in more than $3,000 in donations in about a month. Due to conflicting advertisements for the spectacle, "Gobbler Bob" has agreed to undergo another basting at The Streets of Brentwood on Sunday, Dec. 12, at 2 p.m.
Saturday's basting began with a "baste" of Christmas confetti. By the end of the event, Oakley's incoming mayor, Jim Frazier, had enlisted the assistance of ECCFPD Engine 52,to give his neighbor a good-natured, and thorough, hosing.
