Although Tony came up short this time in his congressional district race, like him, many other young non-white Americans are running for public office even before reaching their 30th birthday. As young brilliant leaders, they are taking up the chance to run for public office in their districts based on the obvious and clear reality of today’s American political condition.
Another example earlier this year was a young prospective running to replace former Rep. Hilda Solis (Now Secretary of Labor) for office in California's 32nd district, Emanuel Pleitez. He also came up short, but now enjoys name recognition and thus a better possibility to win a future election.
It is inevitable to expect that there many others like Tony and Emmanuel all over America, soon following in the same footsteps to run for public office in districts throughout the land; a new generation of Americans is now responding to today’s immense challenges presented to us. Tony and Emanuel represent such role models of new American leadership for others who aspire to do the same in their cities and towns across America. I am sure they will win an elected public office in their districts sooner than later— it is just a matter of time.
