Eric Ulrich, 24, Councilmember
He's like the Kennedy of councilmembers—except he's a Republican. Well, nobody's perfect, but Ulrich has an impressive record of public service: he was already a civic association president and community board member, as well as a member of his local police precinct's community council, Knights of Columbus, and Kiwanis Club. In February, he won a special election to represent Rockaway Beach in the City Council and was reelected in November. Would that we had his sense of purpose.
