  1. I came here to show to my son on what he can do. People like above leave comments that are unnecessary to leave at a scout page. It’s great to see this generation going into politics at a young age. The fact he is still in college and trying to make a difference for our country. Shows a lot of merit on this young man’s character! Also this young man is showing all young men and boys you can do anything once you put your mind to it!

  2. i think its kind of cool that people respect him enough to vote a 19 year old to be the mayor of their town.

  3. I can’t believe that he could win so convincingly while being so young. If I’m an older politician in that city I would be kicking myself.
