17-Year-Old Student Announces Bid for Murfreesboro City Council

A high school student in Rutherford County has announced his intention to run for Murfreesboro City Council, the Daily News Journal reports. Zach Ouellette, a 17-year-old student at Central Magnet School, decided to enter the race after the recent tax hike approved by the council in June. Ouellette, who will be 18 next May, said of his campaign: "There's a general trend of spending a ton of money, and there's a huge hole in our budget. Instead of raising taxes, we need to look at spending. We need to find what we do and don’t need." Candidates can pick up their petitions to formally enter the race beginning Feb. 3.
