    kinda ridiculous if you ask me



  2. 2

    Nothing "Amazeballs" about it, dumbass. You need to pull your head outta your rear once in awhile and see what real life is all about

    OH PLEASE, HE'S NOT READY TO DO ANYTHING. ALL TEENAGERS THINK THAT THEY ARE READY TO BE "ADULTS" AND WEAR THE "BIG BOY/GIRL PANTS", BUT WHEN THEY COME FACE TO FACE WITH THAT SHIZ, THEY GET FLIGHTY AND RUN HOME TO MOM & DAD. I'M NOT SAYING THAT HE'S IMMATURE OR ANYTHING, BUT THIS ISN'T YOUR AVERAGE "RUNNING FOR CLASS PRESIDENT" THING, IT'S MUCH BIGGER. HE'LL EVENTUALLY GET STRESSED, TIRED, AND MIGHT GO-UNDER.

    if obama can run a country, then a 19 year old kid can certainly run a town

    I used to live in Wisconsin and in Madison there was an unemployed guy and an alcoholic and some other loser running for Mayor. It was a joke. Anyone can run for Mayor in Wisconsin and it doesn't matter if you are qualified or not.

    I can't see the video on my phone but I bet its a nice speech. All I got to say is that , its nice to have a tennage mayor for once. Everyone in the goverment is old and close to the door. Having a 19 year old in office will mean, more ideas and more planning

    Re: sonny – lol True, but this guy seems kind of smart. He must have gotten his whole school to vote for him. I can't imagine many old people voted for him. I hope he doesn't let his Mayor duties go to his head.



  11. 11

    Props to him.. I agree with uw101.. Good LUCK



  12. 12

    that town must be full of idiots or the other contenders were horrible, because there is no way a freshman in college is ready to be mayor of atown



  13. 13

    …but he's a child!



  14. 14

    in the olden days lots of rulers were under 25………….of course in those days men died young.



  15. 15

    does that mean i can run in 2 years?



  16. 16

    Amazeballs!!! So Festive!!!

    Your criticisms of this 19-year-old libertarian mayor are worthless. He still won and he'll do a better job managing his town than Obama manages the country. Meanwhile, those of you on around his age or are too busy whacking off or getting drunk to accomplish anything of worth.

    So yeah, criticize him all you want. What you say in this virtual world means shit in real life.

    This happened in Muskogee, OK 2 years ago. They also elected a 19-year-old mayor. And he must be doing a good job, because he was just re-elected.



  19. 19

    Muskogee Oklahoma elected a 19 year old mayor and he just re-elected this year.



  20. 20

    wtf is going on in Wisconsin



  21. 21

    I'm from the town next to Rice Lake, and just so you all know, we're not backwater idiots who know nothing. As far as Quinn goes, he's been serving on the Rice Lake city council the past couple years, so he knows what's going on. This is a smart kid. Also, they aren't idiots in northern Wisconsin. The residents of this city wouldn't elect somebody that they didn't think would do a good job. I will admit that I don't know if there are "qualifications" for running for mayor, but I am positive that the many informed and knowledgeable adults in Rice Lake wouldn't blindly vote for someone that they don't think is qualified. GOOD FOR YOU, QUINN!



  22. 22

    I agree with him.
    He says that we need to be doing more instead of talking about what we have done. Move forward. I Hope he takes time off of school though. He's a freshman in college. You can't be mayor and go to school full time.



  23. 23

    I live 45 minutes away from Rice Lake and I didn't even know about this. haha



  24. 24

    anyway, mayors are puppets from a whole control system behind: the rest of the Party, corporations and such. so who cares!



  25. 25

    I say well done. If more people in his age group had higher aspirations instead of the "fuck you, its all about me" generation we're stuck with then the world would be a better place.
    Perez still sucks ass though - that will never change.

    I have to give this young man two thumbs up and I wish him the best. If he can improve the small town in any way is always a good thing. Comments that he is to young are coming from people that have little or no intelligence themselves. How many politicians are well over 19 years old and are not doing a good job. HUNDREDS that is how many. Look what good ol' George W. did to our country………..hmmmmmmm



  27. 27

    If they really want a 19 year old kid running things for them, then have at it. Live and learn…



  28. 28

    I'm from Milwaukee, WI and attend school not too far from Rice Lake. We're not all idiots, and give the guy a chance. Just because he's 19 years old doesn't mean he can't handle the job. Sure, it's wrong to discriminate based on ethnicity, gender, sexuality (which it is) but not against age? That's bullshit. He'll do a fine job. Obviously, he was elected for a reason.



  29. 29

    Crap like this happens every year, just like the old person who graduates from college, or the oldster that finally gets to go to prom, and the 7 year old that enters MIT. It's just news fodder. Noone takes it seriously.



  30. 30

    Too bad he is a homophobe. I know him personally, he will be a terrible mayor.



  31. 31

    I do not understand why there are all these haters? Shut up! Give the kid props he is oviously intellegent and it's not like any of you people know who he is or what he is capable of? I am from Wisconsin and we are not a bunch of idiots who sit around all day and drink. This young man shows that. Can you say in your state that someone his age is intellegent and mature enough to be your mayor, no matter how big or small the town is? I bet not. Before you judge someone maybe you should find out more than just what other people say. Stop being prejudice. Everyone always says that the young people in our country need to step up and start caring about their country and when someone does everyone bashes him. Grow up!
