We Rank the Politicians of 'Parks & Recreation' in Honor of Election Day
Parks and Recreation is one of TV's most lovable comedies, despite — or perhaps because of — its crop of good and bad politicians.
Set within the walls of City Hall in Pawnee, Indiana, the Mike Schur-created series follows Parks Department head Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and her eclectic team of cohorts. During the show's seven season run, it featured not only a slew of real-life political figures, but fictional ones who depicted the turmoil, for good and bad, of public service.
Below, we rank, from worst to best, the political figures fans have come to love, and hate, on Parks and Recreation. Scroll to see how your favorites stack up.
