Fayetteville elects one of youngest leaders

December 7, 2009 4:48:10 AM PST
One of the youngest city leaders to win an office in Fayetteville's history will take her oath of office Monday.

Kady-Ann Davy, 26, took on a two-term incumbent council member and won 55 percent of the vote for District 2. She will represent the city's oldest and most diversified district.

Davy largely credits her win to her youth. She says the community is happy to have a breath of fresh air, "a new person on the council that's going to bring a lot of energy to it."

She was a delegate for then presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama at last year's Democratic National Convention.

Davy is a health consultant who started thinking about running for city council more than a year ago. She will be the only new face on the council this term and is ready to hit the ground running.

She will be sworn in this evening along with several other council members and the mayor.
