Detroit Zoo looking for new Mayor of Amphibiville

Posted: Updated:

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) -- Candidates are leaping at the chance to become the "newt" leader of the Detroit Zoo's amphibian population.

The zoo is seeking a Michigan resident, ages 7 to 12 years, to serve a two-year term as Mayor of Amphibiville, its two-acre wetland village and home to the National Amphibian Conservation Center.

Candidates must write an essay of 100 or fewer words on why they should be mayor and submit it to the zoo by Friday. The winner will be announced in November.

The job comes with a plush frog and a one-year family membership to the zoo.

The outgoing mayor is 10-year-old Claire Kozal of Whitmore Lake.
