the rev: This 19-Year-old Spelman Student Has Qualified To Run For Office In Georgia th soulia4 A 19-year-old Georgia woman has fought her way onto the ballot, and, if elected, could become one of the youngest elected officials in the United States. Mary-Pat Hector, a sophomore at Atlanta's Spelman College, is seeking a city council seat in the newly incorporated city of Stonecrest, a suburb east of Atlanta that is home to about 50,000 residents. Another candidate in the race challenged her eligibility to run, arguing that she should be barred due to a state law requiring that all elected officials be at least 21 years of age. But Hector, who serves as national youth director for the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network, protested, arguing that if she is old enough to vote she should be old enough to hold political office.The DeKalb County Board of Registrations and Elections on Thursday ruled that Hector can run because the city's charter held no such age restriction. That ruling apparently makes her the youngest woman to run for elected office in Georgia. Stonecrest will hold its first election on March 21. Area residents voted in 2016 to incorporate. Up for grabs are the positions of mayor and five city council seats. Three people are running for mayor and 17 for the council. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th blackgirlsrock blackgirlmagic✨ blackexcellence

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) met with Sandra Bland’s mother and shamelessly used it for political capital?Neither do we, because – though the Democratic presidential candidate apparently did meet Geneva Reed-Veal – he didn’t tell anyone about it. He did, however, promise to #SayHerName, which he did Tuesday during the first Democratic presidential debate.The tale of Sanders’ chance encounter with Reed-Veal comes via the Rev. Hannah Bonner, who bumped into Sanders at Union Station in Washington last week while she was eating with Reed-Veal, and invited the presidential candidate to join their table.Bonner wrote in her blog recalling the meeting that she “was completely blown away by the unexpectedness of it all, the sacredness of the moment, and the sincerity of all involved.”Bonner wrote that after they talked:“We asked Senator Sanders if we could take a picture with him and he consented. He did not impose upon Ms. Geneva to ask for a picture of his own. He did not use the moment as an opportunity to promote his campaign. He took no record, he made no statement. He did not try to turn it into a publicity stunt. He simply made space for a sacred moment, and then let it pass without trying to gain anything from it.For that, I respect him. For that, I am grateful. That choice may not have made him a very good politician, but it made him a better man.”Source
