A 7-month-old baby became the youngest mayor in America this weekend after he was inaugurated as the honorary Mayor of Whitehall, Texas.
William Charles “Charlie” McMillian, otherwise known as Mayor Charlie, donned a tuxedo as he appeared in front of roughly 150 guests celebrating his appointment at the Whitehall Community Center on Sunday afternoon. Mayor Charlie’s swearing in ceremony comes after he was “elected” in October to serve the local communities in Grimes County.
One attendee, Josh Fultz, 41, a councilman for the nearby Texas town of Navasota, told Newsweek that Charlie “stood on the podium” with his adoptive parents Chad and Nancy McMillian at around 4.30 p.m. as members of the local community witnesses his inauguration.
“He just sat there and kind of goo-goo-ga-ga’d over the people that were all around, like a happy little kid,” Fultz said, adding that the event included a band that played patriotic music, performances from a local high school dance group and a mock secret service.
