Virginia Civic Group Elects Dog As President!

 The Hillbrook/Tall Oaks Civic Association in Annandale, Va., has a new President……Ms. Beatha Lee,  a shaggy, dirty-white Wheaten terrier, similar to our picture shown. It seems Beatha’s owner, Mark Crawford was President for 3 consecutive terms and was not permitted to run again. According to the article from, Mr. Crawford begged several members to consider taking over the position and no one accepted.

Finally, in his frustration, Mr. Crawford submitted a name…..of his dog.

This past election, to make the meeting move faster, only the names and qualifications of the candidates were announced. Running for president, Ms. Beatha Lee was described as a relatively new resident, interested in neighborhood activities and the outdoors, who had experience in Maine overseeing an estate of 26 acres.
Although the members were not familiar with this “person’s” name, they assumed it was a civic-minded new member so 50 members voted her into office! Weeks later, in the Association Newsletter, it came to light their newly elected president is a dog!
