The name of James Tufts was drawn as Mayor of Dorset, Minnesota on Sunday. He’s the state’s youngest mayor at age 3. That’s two days younger than his brother Robert was, when he first held the post.
Three-year-old James Tufts is throwing his hat into the race for Mayor of Dorset. You’ll remember his older brother Robert served two terms in the small northwestern Minnesota town. James found a ringing endorsement in Bobby.
He’s possibly the most adorable city leader in the state, but Mayor Bobby Tufts is now out of office. We first introduced you to the pre-school-aged mayor during last year’s fishing opener.
It’s summer, which means you have about three months to eat as much ice cream as you can. You might prefer malts or cones, but we wanted to find the best ice cream sundae in Minnesota. Your votes sent me three hours northwest of the cities to the Dorset House.
In the final hours of his campaign, Dorset’s incumbent mayor left nothing to chance. With cards in hand he spent all day stumping at the annual taste of Dorset. “I got up super early before anyone,” Bobby said. He hoped to win support from the thousands of undecided voters. For just $1 per vote, people submitted names to the town’s ballot boxes during the Taste of Dorset Festival.
