Dog for Mayor of Town of Dryden

Yes, that's a real Ithaca Journal headline, one which made me really wonder if I was seeing things. However, it's a fundraiser...

The Kiwanis Club of Dryden is hosting the first Dog for Mayor of Town of Dryden contest. This fundraising event to help support the club's many service projects is with the blessings of the Town of Dryden Supervisor Mary Ann Sumner and the Village of Dryden Mayor Randy Sterling....

Members of the community can nominate their pet by submitting a photo (such as the attached example of Rocky) with the name and current age of their dog, the owner's name, address, and e-mail address, and a $5 donation to Kiwanis received by the club by 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 1. Nominations can be mailed to the club at P.O. Box 282, Dryden, NY 13053 or submitted to a Kiwanis member. Six candidates will then be chosen at random for the "election."...

Community members may then vote for their favorite candidate by submitting the name of the candidate with a suggested donation of $1 to Kiwanis. People can vote as often as they wish for their candidate.

Let's hope this works!

Always a cynic; does the town dog enumerator get the list? ;)

The headline baffled me, too. I guess I would have blessed it - if I'd known about it. Shall I submit a photo of Charlie?
