Simpsons Wiki

Mary Bailey is the governor of Springfield's State.


Mary Bailey ran for re-election against Mr. Burns and won in a landslide after Marge served Mr. Burns a three eyed fish, which he promptly spat out.

In season 13's "The Frying Game", the governor is briefly mentioned as being a man, implying she is not the governor anymore. In the next season's "The Seven-Beer Snitch" she is shown being the governor again.

Bailey also judged Bart and Lisa's class projects (designing a nsw State flag) in Capital City. She yells in disgust after unfurling Lisa's flag, which Bart had redesigned to make it look like a butt with "Learn to Fart" underneath. However, she stated that her reaction was because she felt that she had unfurled the flag poorly.

Bailey also brings order amongst the prisoners in a jail riot and pardons them. She was also present at the 38th Annual Springfield Media Awards.

When Homer got Barney Gumble to get his check, her signature appears on the check.



Mary Bailey is an elderly woman with short gray hair. She bears a striking resemblance to Beatrice Simmons.

Political party

Given Mr. Burns' affiliation with the Republican Party, Bailey is presumably a Democrat, although that has never been stated and she could also be an independent politician. She was mayor of Springfield before both Joe Quimby and his predecessor. Governor Bailey ordered an investigation about possible pollution by the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. The investigation did not find anything on pollution, but did find that the plant was not up to code.
