Tryon to elect dog for mayor


Tryon has a mayor but that’s not enough for the town in western North Carolina.

Residents there are looking to elect a Dog Mayor!

7News Reporter Christine Scarpelli met some of the candidates on Tuesday morning.

There are 23 candidates so far — of all breeds and ages. You can see them all here at 

One canine, Duchess, is a resident of the Foothills Humane Society. The 2 year old Staffordshire Terrier.

Each dog has a “platform” or slogan to show off.

Voting ends Thursday. Elections will be held at the fountain downtown on Friday at 6:45 PM. The dog or cat with the most votes and money raised wins the election and will remain mayor or a year.
