The new mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota is just seven years old and doesn't have much to say.
That's because he's a dog named Duke.
There was no campaign and Duke won by a landslide.
The 12 people in the village each paid a dollar to cast a vote.
After winning, Duke got five hours of grooming and a new outfit.
He's even helped make his community safer by roaming around.
Duke gets officially sworn in Saturday during the city's 4th annual 'Cormorant Daze.'
As for the mayor's salary, Tuffy's Pet Food out of Perham is donating a year's supply of kibble to reward Duke for his service.
