Teen becomes mayor of city in Texas

ARCHER CITY, Texas (KFDX) – He may be graduating from high school this month, but already he’s entering the political ring.

Kelvin Green, 18, was sworn in as mayor of Archer City, Texas Friday morning.

Green was the only person who filed to run for the position.

City officials say he is about 20 years younger than all of the city’s previous mayors.

Green says while growing up, people always told him he’d be great for the position because of his passion for Archer City.

“It’s my whole world, its my life, I have lived here for 18 years and I am proud to be a part of it,” he said.

Green says he doesn’t have a grand agenda as the mayor. He says when you start telling people what you are going to do they usually get upset and he wants to avoid that.
