Canine residents of Salt Lake County are encouraged to run for mayor. While “CANINEdates” must be Salt Lake County residents, voters can live anywhere. This Canine Mayoral Election is a fundraiser for Salt Lake County Animal Services and all funds raised from this event will go to their Injured Animal Fund. The winning canine will serve a 2-year-term and attend special events with Mayor McAdams. More details will be announced at the news conference with Mayor McAdams

This shameful display makes a mockery of the democratic process. This is further proof that Western Civilization has truly reached its lowest point in several millennia. In a time when the ignorant masses consider high culture to be sitting around in sweatpants watching hot dog eating contests to be high culture, there is great reason for concern. Essentially, the great croc-wearing hordes are dragging society into depravity. Our society is rapidly approaching a new Dark Age. This process will soon reach the stage of being irreversible unless we act fast to protect what little refinement still exists in society.

I would like to see more pictures of the dogs. They are genuine.

Is there an independent dog running? I don't think any of the dogs from the major parties are going to keep their campaign promises.
