Forbes has put out this year’s “30 Under 30” lists, and Ithaca’s very own Mayor Svante Myrick, first elected at the age of 24, has made the Law & Policy list.
“Just in time,” quips the young mayor. “I’ll be thirty in March!”
The magazine points out that Mayor Myrick inherited a $3 million budget deficit, and closed that gap “while ultimately lowering taxes.”
When he ran for re-election a little over a year ago, he won with 89% of the vote.
