Elgin candidate just old enough to qualify for seat
Placeholder Image
Sydney Ernst will turn 18 years old just in time to qualify for June’s special election to fill Elgin Town Council’s fourth seat recently vacated by her father, Norman “Bubba” Ernst. The younger Ernst believes council needs representation for its younger citizens which is why she wants to run. “Many people, such as myself, have grown up here, go to school here, are now a part of the work force here, and they also have a passion for this small town,” Ernst said.
