“Happy Days” Anson Williams is running for mayor of Ojai, California

Actor-director Anson Williams wants to switch from Hollywood to politics.

The “Happy Days” star announced that he will be running for mayor of Ojai, California at the local city council meeting on June 28, the Ojai Valley News reported.

During the public comment phase of the meeting, Williams, 72, said the city needs “a leadership that inspires a collaborative team,” according to the local paper.

He meets current Ojai Mayor Betsy Stix, who is running for re-election.

Williams is best known for his role as Postie Weber, Richie Cunningham’s best friend, on the hit ABC sitcom of the 1970s.

His former Happy Days co-star Henry Winkler, who played Fonzie, has already backed him.

“You have my vote,” Winkler tweeted Tuesday in response to a KABC TV reporter’s tweet about Williams’ running for mayor.

Ojai mayoral candidates and anyone running for any office have until July 18 to officially declare their candidacy by picking up papers at the city clerk’s office, according to Ojai Valley News.

It is not known if Williams did so.

After Happy Days ended in 1984, Williams went behind the scenes as a producer and director.

He produced the 1980 film Skyward, starring Bette Davis, and has directed shows such as Lone Star Kid, No Greater Gift and seaQuest.
