Enter John Doyle, a young man who some consider the unofficial Mayor of City Island. He holds no official office, though he does hope to run for City Council at some point.

Doyle is one of our 50 People to Know as much for what he believes as for what he has accomplished in life. “One person can’t do everything but everyone can do something,” he says.
