DORSET, Minn. (PIX11) — A town in Minnesota has a new mayor and he’s not even in school yet.

Meet 4-year old Mayor Robert Tufts.

The people of Dorset picked his name out of a hat, making him mayor.

With stick in hand, he walks the streets of Dorset with pride.

Sometimes he even dances on them. According to his family, little Robert likes to go fishing in his spare time.

Despite his new gig, Mayor Tufts will be out of job in August when his term ends.
