Students Run For Borough Council
On May 19th, the State College Borough Council will be holding a primary for the seven-member unit. Two of the candidates on the ballot aren’t old enough to legally rent a car.
Penn State students — Democrat Bill Van Saun and Republican Brett Fisher — were inspired in large part by last year’s historic presidential politics. Now they’ve refocused that interest at the municipal level.
Van Saun is 19 years old and a self-described State College “townie.” Fisher is 21 and halfway through Penn State’s MBA program. I’m not one for ageism, by my guess is neither will be taken seriously by borough voters.
This isn’t the first time a Penn State student has run for public office in State College, and while intentions of these candidates are usually nothing but good, expectations are tempered. However, in the case of Fisher, he’s all but guaranteed a primary nomination because only three Republicans are running. It should be interesting to see how both individuals fare between now and the Nov. 3rd election.

About the Author
After losing my father to cancer, I thought there was nothing THON could offer me that I didn’t already know. After four years, I found comfort in the familiar.
As you’ve probably been able to piece together, there’s a relationship between lack of sleep during THON and weird dreams.
