Milford Meanswell is Stephanie's uncle and the mayor of LazyTown.


"Mayor Meanswell is a passionate advocate of LazyTown, loving everything about it. He loves that it's the laziest place on Earth. He loves that the town has its very own health hero who is the sworn enemy of laziness. And he loves that the hero has a nemesis! How can one man be in favor of all these contradictory things? Well, he is a politician, after all.

The Mayor often doubles as the town librarian, postmaster, banker, shopkeeper and any other role for which he's needed. Frantically overwhelmed by his various duties, he figures if HE doesn’t not do it, who else in LazyTown will? He has a "secret" passion for Bessie, but his efforts are always futile and met with semi-disastrous results He can make mistakes, but the kids look up to and respect him in a kindly Uncle way – after all he is their only mayor." —


Milford has tanned skin, brown eyes, and gray hair which is receding. He usually wears a dark yellow business suit over a plaid sweater-vest and a white shirt button up shirt and a tie. He also sports brown shoes and grey socks with red stripes.

In the books written before the plays, he’s the protagonist when The Sports Elf (Íþróttaálfurinn) is not, being the one person in the town that doesn’t want to be lazy. This continued into the play of Áfram Latibær. Most of the more comedic elements of the character were added to the TV show, possibly combined the comedic aspects of Lolli Lögga with the mayor’s character.
