In Fair Haven, Vermont voters have elected a goat named Lincoln mayor. In an attempt to explain the unusual outcome, Town Manager Joseph Gunter said he was unsure, but offered some possible motivations. On the one hand, the goats name may have played a part in the decision. Lincoln was one of this nations greatest leaders. Perhaps the name alone inspired confidence.
On the other hand, voters have elected and reelected Bernie Sanders to the US Senate, Gunter observed. So, odd choices by the electorate are not entirely unknown in our state. At least the goat hasnt proposed any crazy policies that could embarrass our town.
