This lucky Alaska town has a cat for a mayor7/15/2012
The cat’s out of the bag on the secret to this small Alaska town’s success: a mayor with four paws and a whiskered grin. “Stubbs” is a part-Manx kitty who happened upon the Talkeetna political scene 15 years ago when voters—disenchanted with their mayoral candidates—launched a write-in campaign. The cat won over the town of 900 people, and though his title is merely honorary, he is credited with spawning a blitz of attention that elevated the city to its current status as a tourist destination. Out-of-towners still stop in every day to visit the furry feline at the general store, where the aging politician spends most of his days lounging around. [Source]
