22 and 24

Those are the ages of the mayors elected yesterday in Wisconsin in the cities of Manitowoc and LaCrosse, respectively.

These are both significant cities in the state landscape.

I met the Manitowoc candidate, Justin Nickels, several years ago while on the campaign trail, and, though he leans left from what I know, I wish him the best in running the old county seat, should he survive what I'm guessing will be a recount in the face of a mere 15-vote gap (although some aren't so sure).
