FAIR HAVEN, Vt. (AP) — The new honorary mayor of Truthful Haven, Vermont — a three-yr-previous goat named Lincoln — was officially sworn into office this week.
Lincoln was dressed in a sash reading “Mayor” for the Tuesday ceremony at the Truthful Haven town workplaces. City Clerk Suzanne Dechame and the choose board have been current to deliver the oath of office.
Truthful Haven, a town of about 2,500 along the border with New York just west of Rutland, does not have an actual mayor.
City Supervisor Joseph Gunter says the honorary pet mayor concept was conceived as a fundraiser for a playground, however it become a civics lesson for teenagers.
On the best way out of the workplaces, the honorary mayor defecated on the ground — leaving clear-as much as the police chief and other attendees.
