Have You Heard

It was  a landslide victory for this tiny 4 year old. He was reelected mayor of Dorset, MN . This election made national news yesterday. In June I posted a blog about Bobby Tufts who at the age of 3 became the mayor of a small tourist town Dorset in northern Minnesota . He hadn't even started preschool yet. There are no age requirements to run for the office of mayor. Well now he is 4 and just won reelection for a second term during  the annual Taste of Dorset festival on Sunday. Bobbie loves cotton candy and ice cream. When asked what he'd like to do it's go fishing rather than debate. 
Dorset has a population of 22-28 with no formal city government. Anyone can vote as many times as they like for just $1 a vote at any of the ballot boxes in stores around the town.   
The proceeds go toward costs for organizing the festival. Bobbie has been involved in several other fund raising activities which include raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Fargo, ND and a new welcome sign for Dorset, which bills itself as the Restaurant Capital of the World. Already $750 from a walk this summer has been raised.
Bobbie has been featured on local TV shows and recently talked by phone to ABC Good Morning show.
Way to Go Bobbie!
