Bobby Tufts, the 4-year-old mayor of the town of Dorset, Minn.–which has a population of 28–gave his first interview after taking his new job on Monday.

Tufts told MSNBC in an interview that “I’m the boss!”

“I … I’m going to make a new … promote local business,” he added when asked what he would do to help his town.

He added that an “ice-cream shop!” would help his town.

“I want to be a president,” he also said.

According to The Associated Press, Tufts was elected mayor of his small town last year, when he was 3. He was elected to a second term earlier this month.

Dorset has no formal government and has an election rule that you can vote as many times as you’d like for $1 per vote. They also pick a ballot of a box at random.

He gave the interview with Jansing & Co. on Monday.
