Michigan’s Youngest Politician Is From Inkster

Jewell (Jew-el) Jones, represents the 11th district of the Michigan House of Representatives. At the age of 22, he is the youngest politician in Michigan History.

Jewell has been involved in politics even before he could run for office.

His Wikipedia biography says,

Jones’s parents involved him in his church and in volunteering from a young age. He became a deacon in his family church.[1] Jones graduated from John Glenn High School in Westland, Michigan, in 2013.[2] He was a student at the University of Michigan–Dearborn, where he majored in finance and political science, and graduated in May 2017. In 2015, at the age of 20, he was elected and sworn into the Inkster City Council.

Then, in 2016, he ran for and was elected by a 2/3rds majority as the 11th district representative to the Michigan House of representatives.

My thought on this is simple. Why aren’t more young people running for office? What are your thoughts?
