Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick used his appearance on the national NBC news and politics program “Meet the Press” on Sunday to tout the city’s college-graduate talent pool and Democrats’ focus on helping solve problems. Myrick, a Democrat, took part in the program’s roundtable segment. Elected in 2011 at age 24 as Ithaca’s youngest ever mayor, he was “a new face” on a forum with former U.S. senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum, a Republican from Pennsylvania, and two journalists.
