Diezel Depew, 17, to run for Edgewater mayor in November

EDGEWATER – Diezel Depew has always been interested in politics and has always been involved in his community.

The 17-year-old Edgewater resident even started (and continues to operate) his own lawncare business when he was just 12 years old.

But on Tuesday, April 5, he took on the biggest challenge of his life when he announced his run for mayor of Edgewater.

“I’m very blessed to have this opportunity to run and support the citizens (of Edgewater),” Depew said in an interview.
