Teen mayor set to retire

At 21, Michael Sessions is ready to retire.

At least from politics.

The college student was elected mayor of Hillsdale, Mich., when he was just 18.

He says he won't seek re-election because his career plans may prevent him from completing a second four-year term.

Sessions graduates from Hillsdale College next year.

He financed his successful write-in campaign by working at a french fry wagon at local fairs and carnivals.
