2017 Pet Mayor Contest

After an exciting, hard-fought campaign, Sassy the Golden Retriever edged out Spot the Horse to become the Pet Mayor for 2017-2018!
Meet the Candidates
Loveable Lisa, the Shih-Tzu
Mister Tea, the Cat
Spot, the Horse
Voting began the last week of August and ended during the Corrales Harvest Festival the last weekend of September. Polling stations were set up at the various businesses that sponsor candidates, at the Corrales Growers Market, and at the Harvest Festival. The winner was announced at the Festival on Sunday, October 1st where all participants will received awards and prizes.
The success of the Pet Mayor Election is dependent on the excitement, enthusiasm, and momentum built by its candidates. As with most elections these days, there are few rules except one: TO GET VOTES! Voters placed their votes by putting money ($1 per vote) into unique bins at various locations throughout the voting period of about 6 weeks or voting online by clicking on the image of the Pet you wish to vote for. The candidate with the most “votes” (i.e. the pet that has raised the most money) will be the winner of the Mayor's race. Other “officers” will be elected as well depending upon the number of candidates and types of pets. The winner will be announced on the last day of the Harvest Festival, along with other officers.
All will be awarded prizes!
