Although we know that John Tyler Hammons is a gamer, we’re not sure which console he favors.
He seems to be an expert at the political game, however. As the Associated Press reports, The 19-year-old University of Oklahoma freshman, a political science major, was elected mayor of Muskogee, a city of 38,000. He will be sworn in to the unpaid position next week.
Hammons, who drubbed a 70-year-old challenger, wants to create an ethics commission and set up a campaign finance reporting system. From the AP report:
His ambition doesn’t stop him from enjoying the typical diversions of a 19-year-old: video games, movies, fast cars and rock ‘n’ roll. As for dating, the skinny, baby-faced Hammons said he’s waiting to see what kind of offers come his way.
Local cafe owner Gary Armstrong said:
He doesn’t have the baggage. He doesn’t owe anybody anything. It’s sort of a fresh start for Muskogee.
