'Boy meets Congress': Ben Savage trolled as he runs for US Congress despite losing city council election
HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA: Actor Ben Savage, known for his role on 'Boy Meets World', has announced his candidacy for California's 30th Congressional District, according to paperwork he filed with the Federal Election Council on Wednesday.
Savage, who is 42 years old, is considered to be somewhat of a political rookie. In the election that took place a year ago, he lost in his bid to be elected to the West Hollywood City Council. Savage established his priorities and his status as a political outsider on the website he created to run for West Hollywood City Council.
The year 2023 has already proven to be spectacular for Ben Savage, and it has only been in existence for a little over a month. In a recent announcement, the Boy Meets World actor revealed that he is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Tessa Angermeier. The 42-year-old former child star posted a photo of himself and his new fiancee on Instagram, and you'll see a beautiful gem adorning that finger. In the post's caption, Savage wrote, "The best is yet to come."
Ben Savage's political interest
According to a Rolling Stone interview in 2014, he interned for Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, while he was still at Stanford University in the year 2003. This shows that Savage's interest in politics is not new.
In his 2022 campaign website For Hollywood City Council, Ben wrote "I am running for City Council because there are serious challenges ahead and West Hollywood deserves sensible, honest and strong leadership to face them." He also mentioned that Hollywood deserves a leader that can deliver results and that the city is facing public security issues.
He further wrote, "We need to restore faith in city government by offering reasonable, innovative, and compassionate solutions to the city’s most pressing issues. We need to increase and expand access to all the great opportunities West Hollywood affords, by ensuring that every member of the community has the tools they need to succeed."
