Looks like all the candidates were bad as a Vermont town decided to elect a goat for their mayor.
Fair Haven in Vermont held elections for their new mayor and the winner was definitely surprising!
Lincoln won the election beating out his competition by three votes. Oh wait, did we mention that Lincoln was a goat! That’s right, Mayor Lincoln the goat from Fair Haven Vermont.
Now these elections weren’t your typical ones as it was actually a fundraiser to help build a new playground in the town.
Fair Haven officials ended up falling a little short on their financial goals, so they came up with this unique idea to create some money.
“Kids got to vote. So when they went to the polling place with their parents, they were able to participate,” resident Christopher Stanton said.
Although the mayor is now a goat, he won’t be required to run any meetings or sign any bills, however, he is already scheduled to make a number of public appearances in 2020 to fulfill his duty as a public servant.
