Sunlight Mini-Mayor Gabby Noyes, 9, announced she will seek a second term this fall. The news came last week while Noyes made a guest appearance in the Garfield County Fair Parade held in Rifle, Colo. Noyes has since issued a video press conference announcing her re-election campaign. Watch the video here.

Last year Noyes, who hails from Silt, Colo., won Sunlights MiniMayor Election by just 26 votes over incumbent Mini-Mayor Elijah Mattson, 4, of New Castle. Noyes tallied 3,433 votes over Mattsons 3,407 votes. In all 14 candidates ran for office and more than 10,000 votes were cast in the election.
Mini-Mayor enjoys many exclusive benefits including a complimentary season pass, a new pair of skis or snowboard, and most importantly, a seat at Sunlights Executive Table. Sunlights Mini-Mayor keeps his or her constituency updated on breaking news and events by issuing regular press statements via social media throughout the season. Issues that the Mini-Mayor can impact include stickers, events, and the quality of hamburgers and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Officials at Sunlight said the office of Mini-Mayor gives voice to a previously underrepresented but vitally important demographic of young powder hounds. The office of MiniMayor serves a one year term, with a two- term limit, meaning that incumbents can only be reelected once. Only skiers and snowboarders aged 12 and under can hold the office.
