Fair Haven pet mayor election goes to the dogs
FAIR HAVEN, Vt. (WCAX) - The votes are counted and the results are in-- the incumbent has been reelected as Fair Haven’s pet mayor.
“Murfee,” the Cavalier King Charles spaniel will serve a second term.
Students at the Fair Haven Grade School counted the votes on Wednesday and made the announcement. Students and some adults voted in the election.
It was a tight race, with a chicken named “Colonel Kernel” almost beating the pup.
The pet mayor began as a way to raise money for a new playground.
Since completing that fundraiser, the town is now raising money for a dog park.
