From JET to City Hall

Saturday's Daily Yomiuri "Scene" feature was an in-depth look at Anthony Bianchi, the former JET who is now a member of the Inuyama City Council in Aichi Prefecture. The New York native is thought to be the first person born in the US to be elected to public office in Japan. He received record-breaking support in the recent election, in large part thanks to the support of hundreds of former students. Bianchi believes he will see real results from his "common sense" approach to local politics, and has already got the ball rolling on several projects, including setting up links with his hometown.
