Would You Vote a Westford Teenager Into Public Office?
Earlier this month, a high school student nearby in Littleton ran for School Committee and nearly won. If that happened here in Westford, what would be the result?
Earlier this month in Littleton, high school student Alex Pratt ran for School Committee and narrowly missed election by 21 votes.
Despite his age, this wouldn't be his first time sitting in public office, but incumbent opponents said during debates that his candidacy was proof they were doing a good job, that facing such an intelligent high school student was proof the schools are doing well.
If something similar happened in Westford, what would you think? Would you vote for the student? Would you vote for their incumbent opponents for the reasons the incumbents in Littleton gave? Or, would you vote for incumbents because the teenager is too young? Or are there other factors?
