"Dogocrat" top dog in Divide

   It was a hairy mayoral race in Divide, but in the end it was a "Dogocrat" that came out as top dog.

  "Sprite" beat out her closest competitor, a "Republicat" named "Walter", by just over 500 votes.  The competition was fierce with 21 "Dogocrats" and 4 "Republicats" all vying for the title.

   Sprite received more than 47-hundred votes.  All the candidates combined got more than 14-thousand votes, and that is great news for the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter because for each vote cast, they got a dollar!

   The campaign was all part of a fundraiser for the shelter.  The Inauguration will take place this Sunday at noon at the shelter in divide.  There will be a bar-be-que and many of the candidates will be on hand to thank their supporters.  Everyone is welcome including leashed pets.
