  1. You may want to include Brian Zimmerman, who was elected mayor of Crabb, Texas in a straw poll at age 11. Because the community was unincorporated, Zimmerman’s main focus was getting the town incorporated (even though that meant he would lose his office). Brian was featured on a lot of talk shows in the 1980’s, but died suddenly of a heart attack at age 24 in 1996.
