Boy Mayor

This handout photo released by the Tufts family shows Mayor Robert "Bobby" Tufts (right) shaking hands with and unidentified woman in Dorset. Tufts hasn't made it to preschool yet, but he's already been elected twice as mayor of a tiny tourist town in northern Minnesota. Mayor Tufts' name was picked Sunday during annual Taste of Dorset festival to be mayor of Dorset for a second term. It has no formal city government and has a population of 22 to 28, depending on whether the minister and his family are in town.
