Dorset mayor draws national attention

Email

DORSET, Minn. – Dorset’s mayor, Robert “Bobbie” Tufts, has become a national sensation after a WCCO TV interview went viral over the weekend.

Robert is no ordinary mayor. The 4-year-old from Nevis was “elected” mayor of the tiny town of Dorset (population 22) at last year’s Taste of Dorset festival. Each year, anyone can pay $1 to put his or her name in a hat for a chance to have the title and key to the city for a year.

Last August, Robert was the lucky winner.
