Dominic Frongillo made history at age 22 by becoming the youngest person to serve on the Town Council in Caroline, New York. In 2012, he founded Elected Officials to Protect New York, a campaign of now over 800 elected officials across the state opposing fracking. Frongillo is profiled as one of America's 16 most notable young elected officials in Jeff Thigpen's new book "Young Politics."
