10th Annual City Hall Project

We stopped by Mr. Macioci's Civil Society class this week where the 10th annual City Hall Project challenged students to assume the roles of mayor, city council members, and citizens of a mid-sized American city. There were even a few faculty and staff members who joined in!

The students who acted as mayor and council members were tasked to solve four challenging issues facing their city, including closing a 15 million dollar budget deficit. Each mayor presented a different solution to these problems and the citizens questioned these proposals.

Both students and volunteers had a lot of fun getting into character, asking tough questions, and delivering thoughtful answers.
