A FOUR-YEAR-OLD boy has been re-elected mayor of the community of
Dorset in the northern US state of Minnesota.
A worker at a general store there said,
“Residents of the community of 25 people confirmed Robert (Bobby)
Tufts as their mayor on Sunday in a vote at a local festival”
The post of Mayor is symbolic because Dorset was incorporated into a
neighbouring municipality and has no official local government.
The community holds a draw to elect a mayor with residents paying
$US1 ($A1.13) for each of their votes. Robert beat a dog and a rooster who had also been in the running for mayor.
