The Youngest Mayor Ever?

I just read on Yahoo about an 18 year old high school senior who may have won a write-in campaign to become the next mayor of his town of 9,000 residents.

I am really impressed! My opinion of politicians, in general, is pretty low. Most seem incompetent, power hungry, and/or corrupt. However, I like this kid's optimism and energy. If only there were more like him out there!

I hope that he really did win and that he has a possitive and productive political future.

That IS very cool. And it doesn't sound like it was an acrimonious race. The incumbent didn't mention anything about challenging the result.
