IS HE hungry for votes?

Jenkintown Mayor Ed Foley ate at every one of the town's 24 restaurants Saturday to draw attention to its burgeoning restaurant scene. He said before his 16th stop of the day that he had to battle "mom guilt" from restaurant staff as he ate his way around the borough.

The second-term Democrat said he didn't count calories, but he did weigh himself before starting with a single pancake from IHOP at 6 a.m.

The marketing manager for a local insurance company is using the meal marathon to promote Jenkintown's first restaurant week, which starts tomorrow.
