Well, first, serving as Muskogee's mayor isn't quite like serving in the U.S. Congress. And second, unlike Olivo, Mayor-elect Hammons has a good excuse for not voting previously . . . he's just 19 years old and wasn't old enough until now.
Brock, I admire your ambition. But I think you're starting to high. You should be running for mayor of Columbia - not congress. If you were looking to start in an "entry level" position, I wouldn't be so hard on you.
