Due to their youthfulness, incumbent Democrat Calvin Brown, 23, and Republican newcomer Anthony D’Amato, 28, will be seated at the kids table for town council meetings after taking their oaths of office Monday night.

Brown, 23, said he is excited about serving a second term, but disappointed he is still at the little kids table. However, he is thankful to have company for the next two years. D’Amato, for his part, said he will not sit at the little kids table with Brown or anyone else.

Mr. Brown attempted to reassure his colleague, “It’s not so bad they give us crayons to write, paper to doodle and snacks to eat. It could be worse.”
