Mayor To Rule Rainbow Bridge
June 9 | 1 Comment
They say only the good die young, maybe that’s why I’m a ripe 16 and a half years old. Here’s the story of an elected official, Mayor Cochran, who died at the age of 12. Yup, a mayor that was elected to office at the young age of eight, serving four years before his death. You can read all about it here.
Junior Cochran, the mayor of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky has died at the age of twelve. A little young for a mayor you might think, but that’s 84 in dog years!
Yes that’s right, Junior Cochran was a black labrador. Junior was voted mayor of Rabbit Hash in 2004 by a landslide victory after receiving over 3,000 votes, and making him only the second dog to ever become mayor of the town.
The high profile Cochran rose to fame convicting O.K. Simpson for the attack and murder of two rabbits. The notoriety he gained from the showcase trial was the springboard to his landslide victory.
Sadly Junior passed away on Thursday 29 May, just two days before his 13th birthday. An election has not yet been announced, but previous contenders Charlie the Chicken and Marty the Mule are rumoured to be preparing their campaigns.
No word from Clinton headquarters on whether Hillary will enter the race.
