18-Year-Old Mayor Sworn In

WTOL-TV Toledo, OH: 18-Year-Old Mayor Sworn In: "HILLSDALE, MICHIGAN -- Hillsdale now has a new leader. 18-year-old Mayor Michael Sessions held his inaugural rally Monday night with his high school marching band following him through downtown and eventually to city hall. Hundreds gathered to cheer on their young mayor as he thanked everyone who helped him win the election as a write-in candidate defeating former mayor Douglas Ingles by just two votes."

Couple of thoughts:
1. That is sooo cool. 18 year old in charge of a city.
2. You don't need a college education to do something.
3. Every Vote Counts!! Sessions was elected by a 2 or 3 vote edge.

Until the mid-19th century, many young adults held high office, after all monarchs could come from any age.
