In the Clarke College soccer media guide sophomore Adam Mennig lists politics as one of his hobbies. He was not kidding. Mennig turned 20 on Friday but earlier last week was elected to a spot on the Dubuque School Board. The 2004 graduate of Dubuque Hempstead High School says he has been interested in politics for several years and “Just caught the bug I guess.”It was not the first time Mennig ran for a seat on the school board. He lost in his first run last year.Even though he is a full-time student and involved in a sport Mennig says he will have the time it takes to be a board member. He says a lot of people on the board have families and jobs. He says he considers school his job and soccer his kid. Mennig says being a life-long resident of Dubuque helped him as he says he had lots of supportive friends and people he played soccer with that got the word out.
