18-Year-Old Speaks About Winning Seat on Council
OLD FORGE — Voters in a borough in Lackawanna County chose to bring in a young, fresh face in Tuesday’s election.
Devon Brown, an 18-year-old high school student, won a spot on Old Forge Borough Council.
Newswatch 16 caught up with the young man after he got out school. He said winning took a team effort from his family.
“It was a grassroots campaign. We knocked on doors, myself, my grandmother, my mother, my aunt. It was a close-knit family campaign,” said Brown.
Brown says he initially ran for council because he feels Old Forge needs a youth movement.
