America’s coolest mayor

This is the first time I’ve heard of Harvard-educated, professional wrestler look-alike and Braddock, Pennsylvania, mayor John Fetterman, featured in this episode of Hulu’s “A Day In The Life” series. The Guardian has called him “America’s coolest mayor.”

An incredible story about someone who probably could’ve done anything he wanted with his life, but instead decided to help rebuild a fading community.
