===Background===
  +
O'Donovan ran for Mayor of Liberty City against incumbent Mayor [[Roger C. Hole]] in 1993 and 1997. He lost both times but gained support following the second election due to two scandals surrounding Hole. However, O'Donovan himself has previously faced allegations of corruption, drug abuse and soliciting prostitutes.
   
Miles O'Donovan ran against [[Roger C. Hole|Mayor Roger C. Hole]] in the previous election for the position of Mayor in Liberty City in 1992. However, O'Donovan failed but had gained support due to a series of scandals that Mayor Hole was involved in. It is rumored that O'Donovan himself has a past of corruption, drug abuse, and prostitution.
+
===Events of ''Liberty City Stories''===
  +
In 1998, Mayor Hole is assassinated by [[Leone Crime Family]] member [[Toni Cipriani]], forcing a by-election. O'Donovan runs against [[Donald Love]], a candidate put forward by the Leone Family and backed by leader [[Salvatore Leone]]. Despite several attempts by Toni Cipriani to rig the election in Love's favour, O'Donovan is elected after Love's connections to the Leone Family become public knowledge.
   
He runs for Mayor a second time in a special election following Mayor Hole's death at the hands of [[Toni Cipriani]]. Cipriani and [[Salvatore Leone]] (Don of the [[Leone Family]]) oppose O'Donovan with their own candidate: [[Donald Love]]. Cipriani campaigns for Love, however after a link between Love and the Leone Family are found, Love loses most of his popularity and fortune.
+
Following his election, O'Donovan brought an end to the industrial action from the city's ferry port workers by assuring them that the [[ferry]] service would continue despite construction of the [[Callahan Bridge]] and [[Porter Tunnel]] (he later reneged on these promises, as the ferry service ceased operation within the following two years).
   
Following his election victory, O'Donovan helped to end the industrial action of ferry workers on [[Portland]] and [[Staunton Island]]. O'Donovan promised that the [[Ferry|ferries]] would remain in Liberty City and that jobs would not be lost. Despite his promise, the ferries stopped transporting between Portland and Staunton Island between 1998 and 2000 (in [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]] the ferry terminals, by 2000, had been demolished and paved over}.
+
After the election, O'Donovan has Salvatore Leone arrested and held in custody awaiting trial for the various crimes committed by the Leone Family. Leone concludes that the Sindacco Family, Forelli Family and Sicilian Mafia tipped O'Donovan off, so he sends Toni Cipriani to attack the Forellis and Sindaccos, with Cipriani killing the Sindacco Family leader [[Paulie Sindacco]]. Leone later stands trial, where he is found not guilty. After being released from custody, Leone plans to visit O'Donovan and get his remaining charges dropped. However, O'Donovan is kidnapped by Sicilian Mafia member [[Massimo Torini]] and taken to the secluded [[Portland Rock]]. Salvatore and Toni Cipriani eventually locate Torini, where Toni shoots his helicopter down, freeing O'Donovan. Following this, O'Donovan is coerced into dropping the remaining charges against Salvatore and is informed by both men that he now works for the Leone Family.
   
O'Donovan, as one of his first moves, has the [[LCPD in GTA III Era|Liberty City Police Department]] arrest Salvatore Leone, putting him on trial. Salvatore Leone is released after Cipriani kills [[Paulie Sindacco]] and increases activities against the [[Sindacco Family]] and the [[Forelli Family]]. Salvatore, in his belief that O'Donovan will drop the charges, leads to [[Massimo Torini]] (member of the [[Sicilian Mafia]] and opponent of Salvatore) to kidnap O'Donovan. He takes the captive Mayor to [[Portland Rock]], and ends up indebted to Toni and Salvatore after they rescue him. Salvatore tells the Mayor that he belongs to him, and from then on has the Mayor in his pocket.

Miles

Miles O'Donovan is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. He is the Mayor of Liberty City from 1998 until at least 2001.

He is voiced by the late John Braden.

DescriptionEdit

BackgroundEdit

O'Donovan ran for Mayor of Liberty City against incumbent Mayor Roger C. Hole in 1993 and 1997. He lost both times but gained support following the second election due to two scandals surrounding Hole. However, O'Donovan himself has previously faced allegations of corruption, drug abuse and soliciting prostitutes.

Events of Liberty City StoriesEdit

In 1998, Mayor Hole is assassinated by Leone Crime Family member Toni Cipriani, forcing a by-election. O'Donovan runs against Donald Love, a candidate put forward by the Leone Family and backed by leader Salvatore Leone. Despite several attempts by Toni Cipriani to rig the election in Love's favour, O'Donovan is elected after Love's connections to the Leone Family become public knowledge.

Following his election, O'Donovan brought an end to the industrial action from the city's ferry port workers by assuring them that the ferry service would continue despite construction of the Callahan Bridge and Porter Tunnel (he later reneged on these promises, as the ferry service ceased operation within the following two years).

After the election, O'Donovan has Salvatore Leone arrested and held in custody awaiting trial for the various crimes committed by the Leone Family. Leone concludes that the Sindacco Family, Forelli Family and Sicilian Mafia tipped O'Donovan off, so he sends Toni Cipriani to attack the Forellis and Sindaccos, with Cipriani killing the Sindacco Family leader Paulie Sindacco. Leone later stands trial, where he is found not guilty. After being released from custody, Leone plans to visit O'Donovan and get his remaining charges dropped. However, O'Donovan is kidnapped by Sicilian Mafia member Massimo Torini and taken to the secluded Portland Rock. Salvatore and Toni Cipriani eventually locate Torini, where Toni shoots his helicopter down, freeing O'Donovan. Following this, O'Donovan is coerced into dropping the remaining charges against Salvatore and is informed by both men that he now works for the Leone Family.

Events of Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

O'Donovan does not appear in Grand Theft Auto III, but he is mentioned on the Liberty Tree website. O'Donovan is said to have endorsed nailguns [1] (his brother is CEO of Donovan Hardware) and the number of hardware stores in the city has increased twofold since his election. O'Donovan has been criticised for a lack of investment in Liberty City's transport infrastructure, which includes the closure of the ferry ports and failure to upgrade the Portland El train service. However, O'Donovan has promised to renew the licences for the clubs in the Red Light District, and sanctioned a revamp of the area [2], as well as purchasing police helicopters for the Liberty City Police Department in April 2001.[3]
