It looks like Captain America will be the new mayor of Los Molinos, California. Heh, true story, sort of…
The unincorporated town doesn’t have a real mayor, and the title is only honorary. Intead of being elected, the mayor title goes to whoever can raise the most money for their 4th of July fireworks show.
Funny idea! It gets funnier considering the leading contender is Kevin Benson Sr., who’s raising money dressed as Captain America! Congratulations, sir.
Benson says “I instruct school kids on the value of veterans… One year, a teacher said I was so patriotic I was like Captain America.” He’s raising money with softball and horseshoe tournaments and a barbecue.
