We've been getting to meet Mayoral candidates, and it's been AWESOME. State Senator Bob Hasegawa came on June 1 and State Representative Jessyn Farrell came the next day on June 2. We've been asking questions on where these candidates stand on the issues. Then... it's time for You Decide!
Students will answer these questions as they write an essay or create a campaign ad for the candidate they endorse. Who do you think should be our next Mayor? What is their position on an issue that you care about? Along with you, who are other stakeholders on that issue? Does the candidate of your choice stand for the common good or for the individual rights side of the issue?
"Top Tier" candidates for Mayor (top 6 out of 21):
Ask your student to tell you who they chose to endorse and why!
