Murphy took center stage July 7th accompanied by several of the Children's House preschoolers to accept the Key to Eastsound from the Honorable April. The bovine, last year's winner was coincidentally a write-in candidate. Photos and the canine's acceptance speech will be published for readers soon.
Murphy garnered 37percent of the vote but didn't really come on strong until the last week of the election. Mofo was highly favored and won the popular vote by attending several parades and meet-and-greet opportunities with his constituents at the Village Market election booth.Mofo won 26 percent of the vote.
Mr. Antiquus also had a good final showing and came in a strong third in the field of six. In all nearly $4,000 was raised for the Toddler and Preschool programs at Children's House.
