22 year old becomes Mayor of Holyoke, MA ($120 million budget)

I love these stories.  From CBS:

And here in Pepper Pike, we just brought down the average of our electeds from about 69 in the year I ran, to about 66 after Scott Newell and I came onto Council and next year, around 59.  Ten year drop in two 2-year election cycles.

FWIW (aka "for what it's worth"): The 2010 Census says that Pepper Pike's median age (the middle value, not the average) is 49.2 (which happens to be almost exactly how old I am).
