Which dog served a successful mayor?

| David Lewis | Humanity



If you are into political science or just politics you must visit the township of Cormorant in Beker county, Minnesota. This peaceful township is home to a little over 1000 proud residents and over and 18 picturesque lakes. In fact, two-thirds of its total area is water.

Till 2018 and for four consecutive terms the township was run by Mayor Duke, a great pyrenes dog with, apparently, shroud political instincts and mazing managerial skills.

During his time in office crime rate in Cormorant drooped to a flat zero and no financial misconducted has been reported.    

Unfortunately, the popular mayor had to retire when he turned 91 (in dog years) due to declining health. Sources close to the mayor suggested he wanted to spend more time with his family.

Duke died a year later in 2019 R.I.P.
