The Moose Wins Carousel Mayoral Campaign

With more than 1,400 votes cast in the Carousel’s spring mayoral election, The Moose swept to a decisive victory, winning 59 percent of the final tally.

The Peacock and The Mermaid trailed with 24 percent and 17 percent, respectively. 

Voting was heavy in the final weekend as supporters took to the streets with their campaigns.

Team Moose campaigned with the slogan, “He won’t spin the news or the truth. He’ll work to keep the Carousel spinning.”

Nederland Mayor Kris Larsen joined in the fun, appealing to the community during the Whistle Stop Tour with a nod to American president John F. Kennedy, “Ask not what your carousel can do for you, but what you can do for your carousel!”

In addition to being a fun diversion, the campaign raised $1,400 for the carousel.
