Dianne Mongo was Mayor Coleman Young’s barber at Jack’s Barber Lounge for years. The two grew close, and Dianne eventually became the mayor’s confidante, passing along messages to her husband Larry Mongo when the mayor needed to communicate with the streets.

Dianne appears in Episode 6.

People come to me and they knew talking to me was like talking to the mayor.
