DORSET, Minn. (AP) - In the tiny Minnesota tourist town of Dorset, the mayor is a short guy known for his fondness of ice cream and fishing. He's got the county's top cop in his pocket.
And he's 4 years old.
Mayor Robert "Bobby" Tufts was only 3 when he won election last year as mayor of Dorset, a town of a little more than 20 people in the lakes and pines of northern Minnesota. Bobby can pull it off because the job's ceremonial. His only major act so far has been to put ice cream at the top of the food pyramid.
Hubbard County Sheriff Cory Aukes (AWK'-ihs) is a fan, calling Bobby "a cute little bugger."
The kid mayor is seeking a second term next month.
