Van Buren is the mayor of Central City.


At some point, Van Buren replaced Anthony Bellows as mayor of Central City after the latter was arrested for trying to kill Ralph Dibny, who knew about his extramarital affair.

Van Buren later asked David Singh to indefinitely suspend Barry Allen from his job until he could unambiguously proof his innocence.[1] According to Singh, she read Iris West's articles, giving her enough evidence to restore Barry's position.[2]
