George Dean is the former mayor of Smallville.

At some point in time, George Dean became the mayor of Smallville.

Dean invited Morgan Edge to Smallville to attend the town meeting where he offered to use his money in order to create new jobs for the citizens.[1]

Edge was eventually revealed to have been using the people as Subjekts for his superpowers project, and the town was left in even worse shape than before. The townspeople largely blamed Kyke Cushing, and although Dean told the Cushings to their faces that he would help them he in fact planned to scapegoat Kyle to protect himself from political backlash.[2]

Lana Lang-Cushing ran against him in the next mayoral election, the first time he had had a serious challenger in years.[3] After a hard fought campaign, where Dean attempted to cast himself as the "family values" candidate in contrast to the Cushings' marital problems, Lana beat him by a six point margin.[4]
