In the tiny town of Cormorant, Minnesota, there lives a Great Pyrenees named Duke, who has been serving the town as Mayor for the last 2 terms. Now, with one of the highest approval ratings in the country, he begins his third:
Locals say Duke has a high approval rating. “I don’t know who would run against him,” Karen Nelson told WDAY 6. “He’s done such great things for the community.” According to Duke’s owner David Rick, the pup was originally elected by accident via write-in votes. Only 12 votes were reportedly cast in that 2014 election
We are not sure if a town so small needs a Mayor, but Duke seems to be doing a pretty good job. However, if technology ever allows dogs to speak, Cormorant may be in for some very strong anti-squirrel legislation.
