Stubbs for Mayor

About 15 years ago, voters in Talkeetna, Alaska must have been very disappointed in their mayoral candidates, because a tail-less kitten named Stubbs won the election as a write-in candidate.

He’s still in office, and his policies are popular with his constituents:

“He doesn’t raise our taxes — we have no sales tax. He doesn’t interfere with business. He’s honest,” said Lauri Stec, manager of Nagley’s General Store, which doubles as the mayor’s office.

I wonder if Stubbs has ambitions to run for higher office. America could use more politicians like him.
