At the age of four you probably should not have a lot of responsibility. Well brace yourselves Dorset, Minnesota you got a new mayor.

You've probably never heard of Dorset, Minnesota.  It's a tiny town in central Minnesota with 22 residents. This story has put them on the map. The new mayor of Dorset is a 4-year-old.  His name is Robert "Bobbie" Tufts, and obviously he's the youngest mayor in the country.

Dorset doesn't hold elections for mayor they just put everyone's name in a hat and pick out the mayor for the year. This year, Bobbie won. It's not entirely clear what his job duties are as mayor, I am guessing it's just a few public appearances and nothing else. I hope he starts passing new laws like in Dorset, nap time every day at one.
