Democracy has suffered a great loss today. A politician who served his people for 20 years has unfortunately left us. That public servant is Stubbs the cat. In 1997, Stubbs was elected as "mayor" of the small town of Talkeetna, Alaska.
Mayor Stubbs represented the town for 20 years, even after an assassination attempt in 2013, when Stubbs was attacked by a dog and left with a punctured lung, a fractured sternum and a five-inch wound on his side.
