Mayor Max

In 2012, the residents of Idyllwild, California elected Max as their mayor. He was a golden retriever. Tragically he died of cancer a year later, but the people of Idyllwild agreed that Maximus Mighty-Dog Mueller II, aka Mayor Max II, could complete his term of office. The new Max was subsequently granted a perpetual term as mayor. So he's still in charge there.

Thank you for posting this!

I wanted everyone to know they're always welcome in Idyllwild. I would love to meet you!

Idyllwild is just about a two-hour drive from anywhere in southern California, but it's a beautiful world away.

Come say Hi! I'm great a posing for pictures with locals and visitors from the back of my Mayor Mobile.

To ensure we don't miss each other during your visit, feel free to call my Chief of Staff, Phyllis Mueller, at 949.525.0100 and arrange a visit. I'm in town daily, but wouldn't want to miss you if our schedules didn't happen to coincide.

You can also email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Looking forward to seeing you!

Love always,

Mayor Max II

A couple other towns have elected dogs as mayors, and there's also been a cat and a mule. In 1967, Pulvapies won the mayor's election for the town of Picoazá, Ecuador by a clear majority. Pulvapies is a foot powder.
