Students & Councilor Learn From Each Other

webtab'Councilor Marcus Lundy went back to elementary school, Wylam Elementary School in District 9 to be exact. He took some time out of his busy schedule to talk with Mr. Simmon’s 7th grade civics class about how local government works. Students already knew, at least, a little about how to get a councilors attention-persistence. Over half of the class made direct calls to Councilor Lundy asking him to come talk with their class. Turns out, 7th grade was a pivotal time for Councilor Lundy. That’s when he got the “bug” as he calls it to serve in a leadership role in his community. Students asked a variety of questions ranging from infrastructure to crime issues. On this day, Councilor Lundy noticed these young minds cared about the process and how it may impact their lives.
