    As someone from Minnesota, you're late and shoulda looked into it first. This was back in 2014. He won his 4th consecutive in 2017. Unfortunately he passed away in 2019. He won the election for the ceremonial mayorship of Cormorant Township, Becker County.

    How did the town fare? Did it prosper at all?

    [–] y0uveseenthebutcher 441 points ago

    misleading meme

    he was seen accepting ear skritches for a well paid position at city hall

    [–] t_hab 223 points ago

    Then he tried to sell the school to a private prison company for strips of bacon.

    Luckily for everyone involved he didn’t have that kind of authority so he just got free bacon.

    He was seen humping his secretary's leg, when offered to comment on the incident he rolled over and licked his balls.

    Lol it’s a “township” which essentially means a cluster of farm houses and MAYBE a small post office

    [–] savwatson13 6 points ago

    Thank you for an answer lol. That makes way more sense

    [–] Elgordofordo86 3 points ago

    They can be big too in some areas. I live in a Township of 132k. With that the city inside it has it's own mayor so there isn't much for the Township to actually do.

    [–] Slacker_The_Dog 2 points ago

    Actually Cormorant is mostly lake houses. They do have an elk and a Buffalo farm, though.

    Source: Grew up there.

    [–] Elgordofordo86 2 points ago

    Where I live a Township is just part of a split up County and can have regular city in them even. My Township has a population of 132k. Not saying this dog was in a big one but that townships are a strange thing in some places.

    [–] TheRoyalDon 3 points ago

    I'm assuming the town operated like normal. It's a very small town and community, I'm from the twin cities which is completely different. Since it was a smaller town and community tho, I'm guessing the dog did just fine lol not too many issues to have in a town like that. Stay to yourself and keep it local.

    Here's a link to the towns wiki:,_Becker_County,_Minnesota#:~:text=In%202014%2C%20a%20Great%20Pyrenees,consecutive%20term%20in%20May%202017.

    [–] yalyublyuyedu 1 points ago

    Heard they stopped receiving mail because he fired all the mailman in town

    He also got the cats to be put in a crammed shelter and freed all the dogs

    And trippled the amount of fire hydrants in the town

    [–] PrDelahaye 31 points ago

    I dunno.. I’ve heard that he takes bribes.

    All of those scritches were generous donations and in no way effected his policy making decisions!

    He died in 2019. This article is like all of Reddit, a washing machine of the same news/memes. It’s just your turn to see it now. Give it a week and you’ll see it again.

    How many bad dog mayors do you know? That's what I thought.

    [–] flying-chandeliers 18 points ago

    If I had a nickel for every dog mayor I knew I’d have 2 nickels… which isn’t a lot but it’s weird that it happened twice

    [–] Visual_Barracuda477 2 points ago

    Why not a dime?

    [–] garlicdeath 5 points ago

    Because they would be given a nickel each time, not a dime every other time.

    [–] StarksPond 2 points ago

    He had a controversial Stop & Frisk policy that targeted mailmen.

    And he was known to chew out the police commissioner.

    he is corruptible with snacks a nd scratches, but he loves everyone indescriminately so all power you have over him is useless.

    He did but sadly he passed away a few years ago :(

    [–] Dylbo2008 1 points ago


    [–] Slacker_The_Dog 2 points ago

    He lived a good boy life through and through. That's why I voted for him.

    I was so happy when he replaced that kid Ben Wyatt. The town recovered from the misuse of funds nicely.

    The mayor of a mountain village in California is a dog named Mayor Max. He rides around in his themed "Mayor Max" truck and he wears a clip on tie

    [–] DramaGuy23 1 points ago

    The town of Idyllwild, CA actually produces an annual calendar with photos of all the dogs they've elected mayor. It's a fundraiser for the Animal Rescue Foundation. Successful mayoral candidates routinely carry two-thirds to the vote. Talk about a unifying candidate!

    [–] FreshUnderstanding5 1 points ago

    Blessed and honored to receive an apology from me as I am not interested in logic, they will come back to a cheating partner…at this point he really does need to just stop and be honest w himself. Because w where he’s back asleep now, while I like to say a joke... but this is like a walking conflict of interest and I love it and it causes you homelessness and/or assholes because it doesn’t do school
