Government Day returns; kudos to city

Published: Thursday, April 25, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

I would like to take this opportunity to thank City Hall. I received a phone call welcoming our students in for Government Day this year.

I am happy to hear that our officials are interested in our youths’ education and participation in local government. My students will be thrilled to have this opportunity. 

Once again, I appreciate our city officials taking the time to educate our students as to how our city operates.
