4 year old elected mayor
DORSET, Minn. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Robert "Bobby" Tufts hasn't made it to preschool yet, but he's already been elected twice as mayor of a tiny tourist town in northern Minnesota.
Mayor Tufts' name was picked Sunday during the annual Taste of Dorset Festival.
The city has no formal government and has a population of 22 to 28, depending on whether the minister and his family are in town.
Anyone could vote as many times as they like for $1 a vote. The proceeds go toward organizing a festival.
Bobby and his family say they plan to go fishing and have a bonfire to celebrate.
