Meet Michigan’s Youngest State Representative
Jewell Jones, a student at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, has made political history for a second time.
I don't know why this story didn't get bigger headlines in November, but young Jones is an astounding young man.
The Huffington Post reported that last year, at just 20 years old, Jones became the youngest person to ever sit on the city council of Inkster, Michigan. But, that wasn't enough for Jones. At 21, he was elected in November as the youngest state representative ever in Michigan.
According to the Michigan Journal, Jones defeated his opponent Robert Pope with 66 percent of the vote.
If being a Michigan State Representative isn't enought, Jones is a full-time student at UM-Dearborn, double majoring in political science and finance.
Outstanding, Jewell Jones.
