Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from Steve Skadron. In Social Studies we have been discussing government and communities. A few of our friends in Miss Jill's class wrote the mayor some letters asking what he does and how he keeps our town safe. He was nice enough to respond to them with handwritten letters and then come pay us a visit and meet us in person. We talked about our town government before he came and what a Mayor does. We asked him lots of questions! What kinds of laws does he make? (changing speed limits to make the roads safer) How many people live in our town? (6,000 full time residents in Aspen proper) Can he build us a new playground in our neighborhood? (this depends on where you live and some other people too!) Thanks for paying us a visit and working to keep our town nice and safe!
