  Mayor James Tufts


As James Tufts, the 4-year-old Mayor of Dorset, Minnesota squeezes Mr. Steve Harvey's hand, "Don't worry", he said, "I do this stuff all the time." James is putting his tiny upstate hamlet on the map and we’re happy to meet him. James made history about a year ago when he was elected at the age of 3, succeeding his older brother, Bobby, age 7, who had already served two terms and was two days older than James when he won his first election. Prior to this, the office was held by a 16-year-old.

 It's amazing to witness that at just 3-years-old, James is already a politician. Although he isn't even old enough to attend school, he is actually the mayor of his town of Dorset, Minnesota. His interview with Steve Harvey on the Little Big Shots show is so absolutely adorable, this clip is sure to melt your heart!

While the youngster is dressed and looks just like a Mayor, he's as sweet and innocent as any other kid his age.One of the highlights of the interview is when James tells Steve that his 6-year-old brother had actually been mayor twice before. Steve then invites his brother Robert up to join them on stage. This is when we find out that the way they were chosen for mayor, was by the old "Names out of a Hat" method! Congratulations to Mayor James Tufts.   by Kathleen Shipman of Inspire
