Eloisa Melendez, 19, who is a student at Norwalk Community College in Connecticut, was recently elected to the City Council. Eloise is the second youngest person to serve on the Council since Sean Arena at the age of 19 in 1977.”I am young, but I don’t feel as if I’m that different from any other first time candidate,” Melendez said. “Every expert was once a beginner.”Melendez ran with fellow Democrat David A. Watts, who was in attendance today at our Breakfast With Champions, defeating Republicans Robert S. Mercurio and Edmund J. Ryan.
