Kid Candidate

Hayden Pedigo, a 24-year old musician, makes an unlikely run for city council in Amarillo, Texas after his spoof campaign video goes viral. Along the way, this “David vs. Goliath” documentary uncovers the deep-rooted corruption in a city that is mostly owned by a conservative PAC called Amarillo Matters which controls the bedrock of perpetual councilmembers who vote in the PAC’s interest. The Mayor who always runs on a faith-based platform has a monopoly on all the financial power and influence which prevents any new candidates from being taken seriously. Calling attention to economic inequality in the community, Hayden gains support from the marginalized youth and minority populations. A special Q&A will follow the screening with Annapolis’ own “kid candidate” Alderman Da Juan Gay and Annapolis mayor Gavin Buckley.
