Teen eyes city council spot

September 8, 2010

Hart Summier, a 17-year-old high school student, has formed an exploratory committee to run for Greenfield’s city council. Hart admits many residents in the Hancock County city might be skeptical about a teen who’s more concerned about property taxes than prom dates, but he says he’s serious about running. He’s filed the necessary paperwork to run in the May primary, and he’s investigating whether he can raise enough money to mount a campaign. Summier will be 18 by the election, old enough to serve on the council.
