AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Another candidate is vying to become the next mayor of Auburn. This new candidate happens to be a college student.

Jordan Langdon, an Auburn resident and sophomore at Auburn University, is the fourth mayoral candidate to file his intent. Langdon is from Phenix City, Alabama where he graduated from Central High School in 2017.

“I’ve always had an interest in government from a young age. I have had a desire to serve the community that I love so dearly, but I never knew exactly how. Now, God has given me a potential opportunity to take Auburn to the next level and I will not let him nor the citizens down,” said Langdon.

As of now, he is the youngest candidate to qualify for the mayor’s office. 

Langdon has held several leadership positions to include being an executive staff member at Auburn’s student-run television station, Eagle Eye TV.  

Langdon said he has already made connections with leadership in Montgomery and plans to collaborate with them to help improve the city of Auburn.  He will face Ron Anders Jr., Brittany Dement, and Richard Speake in the upcoming election.
