Fairfax County Voters Elect Youngest School Board Member

VIENNA, Va.  (WUSA) - "I heard voters aid they wanted to vote for the bald guy," said Ryan McElveen, who lost his hair in high school due to a condition sparked by stress. But that's not what makes him so unusual. It's the fact he graduated from high school only 7 years ago, and now, at 25, is the youngest person elected to the Fairfax County School Board.

"I came into the race at the 'under-est' of the underdogs. The least amount of money, least amount of endorsements. It shows money doesn't win elections. You have to do the work." said McElveen.

He believes voters liked his pitch to bring a more student-focused perspective to the board. But most of all, he credits support from the Democratic Party.

"I think it shows voters believe Democrats are good stewards of education funding in Fairfax County," he said.
