Rice Lake Voters Elect 19-Year-Old Mayor - wcco.com
Yeah... there's a bunch of wisdom and leadership experience in that executive position
Well it looks to me like he was elected on the basis that he's willing to listen to the people, not necessarily because of any wisdom or experience the people thought he had. Still, you wouldn't think a 19 year old would be able to win a race for any office, let alone mayor.
"He cites Ron Paul, the libertarian-leaning Republican congressman from Texas, as his political role model."
It can't be Dogbert, because Dogbert would never associate himself with Ron Paul.
the other folks quoted in the article were pissed at incompetence and bad manners. He promised to fix one of the problems. He would at least be polite and listen.
YES!!! Weed will be legalized in Rice Lake very soon... BET!! Take that feds! Hehehe. No but congratulations to Mr. Mayor. Hell, the people are wising up. An old lady once told me an old African proverb that went like this:
"When the young begin to talk with the wisdom of adults, a revolution is coming".
There's hope for this nation yet.
True 'nuff on the winning part.... though I have seen 22 year old win before
Now if it were him still in a council seat with a victory or something like that... all well and good.. great place for a person who listens to people... but in the executive, IMHO you want some leadership experience and wisdom... just sayin'
His parents obviously tagged him for greatness when they named him Romaine
Holy crap, the kid can think for himself!
