Animals with sparkling careers in politics

Unopposed hound mayor carries on..

Meet a dog named Duke who is the dully elected Mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota, US. The nine-year-old hound is an incumbent, now serving his third term as mayor. The pooch seems to have no trouble scoring a landslide victory in the election, which was held last month.

Residents are evidently satisfied with Duke’s “policies and overall job performance”, as he ran unopposed this year.

Dog that could be in race to succeed Obama

In 2BITCH009, a border collie named Lucy Lou was elected mayor of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky. She’s the first female to hold that position — albeit, the third dog. Now, she has set her sights even higher — Lucy Lou “aspires” to be the first canine president of the US.

The canine candidate is running as a member of the grassroots “Indepawdent Party” and has a saucy slogan — “The bitch you can really count on” — which she’s been using since her successful 2008 mayoral campaign.

She even has a well thought out platform — she stands for smaller government, lowering taxes, increased spending on mental health care, and is for liberal immigration. And as her campaign team claim, she’s a supporter of equal marriage rights for all —“saying” cats and dogs should be able to marry within their own species, without regard to sex or gender.

If you thought the US presidential race was between two horses, Trump and Hilary, its about time you updated the list to include a dog.

Goat mayoral dynasty runs on..

In the 1980s, a phony race for mayor of Lajitas, Texas was held between a human and a goat named GOATClay Henry. Apparently, the electorate must either have been truly inspired by the animal’s bleating or totally unmoved by the human’s campaign speech because the goat won in a landslide! Subsequently, the family of Clay Henry the goat became more or less a political dynasty. Clay Henry’s son, Clay Henry II, also became mayor. The current goat mayor is Clay Henry III.

Pooch whose election win remains highly regarded

BLACK-DOGBosco Ramos, a black labrador and rottweiler mix, defeated two humans to win the election as mayor of Sunol, California in 1981. His tonguein-cheek election made international news after a newspaper in China denounced it as evidence of the failings of democracy. However, the puppy propaganda only cemented Bosco as a legend, and, today, more than two decades after his death in 1994, tourists still visit the quirky hamlet to hear his story. In 2008, Sunol placed a bronze statue of Bosco under the town clock, complete with his classic neckerchief.
