To quote a commenter on Yahoo, "Goes to show how little you actually need politicians." - ChrisNational polls show that voters all over the country are losing faith in their elected leaders. But the 900 residents of Talkeetna, Alaska, say their mayor is doing a great job bringing in tourist dollars and has served in office for over a decade.
"He's good. He's probably the best we've ever had," resident Lauri Stec tells KTUU. "He was just in the Alaska Magazine, and he's been featured in a few different things."
In fact, Stec hangs out with Mayor Stubbs most days at Nagley's General Store, even though she notes, "He's growling at me right now."
That's because the 15-year-old mayor is actually a cat, who was elected to office as a write-in candidate shortly after his birth.
