Friday, May 10, 2013

Dorset, Minnnesota's new mayor is ready for the spring fishing seasoneven if he's still too young for kindergarten!

4-year-old Robert "Bobbie" Tufts was selected as this year's mayor in the town's annual ceremony late last summer. Mayors of the 20-person town are chosen by pulling names from a hat, even if they're kids.

Bobbie loves fishing and is taking the job seriously, though he says he's never seen the challenge of ice on the lakes this late into spring in all his four years of life.
