Alums who do cool things: Alex Morse ’11

In case you’ve been doubting your employment opportunities for life post-Brown, there’s hope: Alex Morse ’11 was elected mayor of his hometown of Holyoke, MA last night. After announcing his candidacy last January, Morse became the youngest and first openly gay mayor in the town’s history. Check out the Herald for the official details.

Why this is cool: we shouldn’t even have to explain.  Just a few months out of college and Morse is already embarking on a promising political career. Congratulations, Mayor Morse! Lets just hope he resists the urge to build a giant winter sports complex and bankrupt the town.
