Urban Fold

The Youngest Mayor In America

After the recent death of previous mayor Bob O’Connor, Luke Ravenstahl has found himself to be the youngest mayor of any major city in the Country.

"Mr. Ravenstahl is a young man taking over an old steel town that has lost all its mills, nearly half its population and much of its downtown commercial district in the last several decades. Having just ascended from being City Council president, he now faces difficult contract negotiations with city firefighters and has to draft a city budget with approval from two state oversight bodies that have been mandated."
