This week in Minnesota, a 7 year old Great Pyrenees named Duke was crowned the new honorary Mayor of Cormorant. The dog won the town’s recent election ‘by a landslide’, taking all but 3 of the votes.

A number of voters have spoken to the press stating that Duke guards the town making the community safer, and ensuring motorists do not break the speed limit, “He is a natural choice for Mayor’ says local resident Becky Wilmot.

Despite the small fact that Duke is not even human and had no control over his campaign efforts, he still proved a popular choice. T-shirts with Duke as Mayor are already available.

Duke was officially sworn in as mayor in a ceremony on Saturday. Due to the fact the standard mayoral salary would be of little use to him, duke will receive a one year supply of kibble to reward him for his services to the community.
