《中英對照讀新聞》6-year-old mayor endorses 3-year-old brother for office 6歲市長支持3歲弟弟競選
If elected mayor of a small town in Minnesota, not only will 3-year-old James Tufts be the youngest mayor in the state’s history, but he will also be the cutest.
Six-year-old Robert "Bobby" Tufts is a two-term mayor of the small town, but he is ready to pass on the torch to younger brother James.
"Because my mom said I have to, and I’m the older brother," Bobby said. "I’ve been it before so I can help him do it."
A dollar buys a candidate their name in a jar. Each dollar gives James one more chance for his name to be drawn at random to become mayor. And James has some good ideas if he becomes mayor, and already knows what he would do once in office.
"Eat ice cream all day," he said.
