Mayor of Dorset[edit]

In August 2012, Dorset residents "elected" the then-three-year-old Robert "Bobby" Tufts "mayor" for a one-year term, by drawing his name out of a hat.[3][4][5] On August 4, 2013, Tufts was "elected" for a second term.[6] Tufts lost a re-election campaign in 2014 to 16 year old Eric Mueller.[7]
