Garrett Preston Floyd
Played by John Bolger
He is called "Floyd" by most, or "Pres" by his friends. He has been on the
show since 2006. He was mayor of the town for five years, although not
well-liked by most of the other characters on the show, particularly Alexis,
Sonny, Diane, Jason, and Mac.
In 2009 we found out that he had a wife named Andrea. He often cheated on her.
Andrea murdered his latest girlfriend, Brianna, and tried to pin it on Alexis.
Brianna was found by Patrick, Robin, and Olivia at the Metro Court Hotel. Floyd
swore that she just bumped her head on the shower during sex. Robin, Patrick,
Spinelli, Maxie and Sam suspected murder and investigated it. Brianna died in
surgery at GH.
Alexis was then suspected of the murder. She and Floyd had a one-night stand in
2006. Andrea also poisoned Edward's drink. He had a heart attack and ran
into a carnival with his car, killing Andrea, who was revealed to be the real
killer of Brianna.
Floyd presided over the Madison Preparatory School graduation, where Michael was
supposed to graduate. After Michael got into a fight defending his sister,
Kristina, Floyd banned both boys in the fight. Sonny had to pressure Floyd to
give Michael his diploma.
Floyd later resigned as mayor and became the new owner and editor of the local
newspaper, The Port Charles Press (formerly the Herald). He insisted that people
call him Prescott or Pres now instead of Garrett, since he had scandal when he
was mayor. He hired Diane as a gossip columnist for his paper and has been
writing articles about Port Charles and its citizens.
