The town is rallying being the Mayor in support of his 15 years in office.


Mayor Stubbs is enormously popular in Alaska and the municipalities surrounding his town.  Whenever Stubbs enters any of the local business, he’s given the royal treatment.  Many say that his presence is akin to Elvis walking in.

His popularity has gone far beyond the borders of his tiny Alaskan town and he’s received get-well sentiments from as far as Australia.

We at the Kittyton Post wish Mayor Stubbs well and hope he gets well soon and is able to return to the duties of his office.
