Mayor Roland N. Schitt is a fourth generation Schitt and the mayor of the town that bears his name. He is a main character on Schitt's Creek.

Character Description

Though not be the sharpest tool in the shed, he’s no push over either and delights in messing with Johnny Rose's head. With his beer gut and mullet, Roland is Johnny’s white trash nemesis.


Before marrying his wife Jocelyn, Roland enjoyed an active love life, making full use of every room in the Schitt's Creek Motel, even stating that if someone used a forensic flashlight in one of the rooms you could see his ejaculate; a fact he likes to share around. In addition to being Mayor, Roland considers himself the Law in Schitt's Creek, though he's willing to bend a few rules for the Rose family, but Roland loves to remind them not to bite the hand that feeds them.

Roland is highly attuned to the nuances of local politics, although he’ll rarely lift a finger to institute any actual change. He’s blunt, forthright, and will always tell you what’s on his mind, even if it didn't need to be heard.

 He is always willing to go above-and-beyond for his family, so long as he gets to play video games and watch his Julia Roberts rom-coms.

Roland has gradually learned to put family first, and with a new baby, he wants to be more hands-on this time around. In fact, it appears to be the first job he has really taken seriously. Roland has become an essential part of the Roses’ life in Schitt’s Creek, whether they like that or not.
