4-Year-Old Chosen as Mayor

Minnesota Town Chooses a 4-Year-Old as Mayor

Robert "Bobby" Tufts may not be the first 4-year-old we know who rules the roost, but he's certainly the only one who has officially been put in charge! After a two-month campaign that his mom says he took very seriously, the kindergartener was recently chosen to be mayor of his hometown, Dorset, MN.

Granted, Dorset only has 26 residents, but locals say that doesn't diminish the importance of Mayor Tufts. As Yahoo! Shine reports, it's a seasonal town, and the charming little mayor is "a good ambassador," according to shop owner Wizik Wills.

Watch him do his thing, below.
