The Runner-Up For This New Jersey Town Mayor Was WHO?!?!
In Jersey, we can have a good sense of humor. It turns out that Hoboken did not disappoint. The town had a totally uncontested Mayoral election…Mayor Ravi Bhalla ran successfully for re-election. That was no surprise, what was a surprise was the runner-up.
More than 600 voters had a little fun, writing in their votes saying that Mickey Mouse was the right rodent for the job. We never think of Mickey as a rodent do we?
Ravi Bhalla took the lion’s share of the votes, getting 8,716 but 604 were various write-ins, one of the most well-known and non-polarizing of them being the main mouse himself.
Mickey Mouse wasn't the only popular write-in, Kermit the Frog was not far behind. I do however take issue with this. If you are going to pick a Muppet to represent us, isn’t the clear choice Fozzie Bear?!?!
At least people were getting out to vote, right? Here are some other New Jersey high points:
