While his peers wrestle with traditional urban challenges like transportation, crime, potholes and taxes, Cretekos also has to contend with the influence of a vast international sect that descended on the middle of Clearwater.

For Cretekos, being mayor of Clearwater must feel a bit like owning a beautiful home, only to have to share the space with a boorish brother-in-law who lies around all day and drinks your booze.

"It's a little frustrating when you have a Church of Scientology," Cretekos nodded while he picked at a Panera Bread bagel, before quickly adding that his issues with the sect are not with the local members. "But for some reason, its leadership thinks it is above the community."
