Boy, 4, becomes town mayor


A four-year-old boy has been chosen to become mayor of his US town.

Robert Tufts, from Minnesota, will run the town of Dorset ? which has a population of just 22 ? for one year after his name was drawn at the town's Taste of Dorset festival, the New York Daily News reports.

Kathy Schmidt, a Dorset resident, said, "He's right in your face and well-spoken. You can't imagine what a ball of fire he is."

The town is known as the Restaurant Capital of the World as it has the largest number of food establishments per capita.
