Question

It all began on the island of the Francos. I was talking to some people about this guy, the "burgermaster". And I got to thinkin'... what exactly is a burgermaster? And what does he do? I think Twinsen calls him a burgermeister once. Just about sent me into hysterics.

A burgermaster is the "boss" of a city / town.
I always thought it was a perfect English word
