Dog Challenges Goat in Mayoral Race

Last year, the town of Fair Haven, Vermont, elected a goat as their mayor. Lincoln, a female Nubian goat, is the town's first mayor, as Fair Haven is run by a city manager. The election was a promotion to raise funds for a playground. But Lincoln's term is only one year, so she is up for election again, and is being challenged by a police dog.

After he had to clean up the mayor's crap, literally, during her inauguration last year, Police Chief Bill Humphries is hoping for a change in leadership on Town Meeting Day.

Lincoln the Goat, who won Fair Haven's first mayoral election ever by a landslide in 2019 has her first challenger: K-9 Officer Sammy.

And Officer Sammy promises to cut the crap.  

Sammy, a female German Shepherd, boasts a distinguished career with the Fair Haven Police Department. However, a third party has entered the race, with a kinder, gentler, background as a therapy dog. The election will take place during a town meeting in March. Read up on the race at the Burlington Free Press. -via Boing Boing
