Sen. Max Wise talks about importance of citizen participation in government
Kentucky District 15 Sen. Max Wise visited with Adair County Elementary School fifth grade students Monday morning, December 5, 2016 to talk about his job, how government operates, and the various roles of local, state, and federal government in students' daily lives.
To reinforce the concepts, Wise showed a video titled "Citizen Brain."
The short production focused on the importance of citizen participation in government, representation at the different levels of government, and the types of issues that are handled at the national, state, and local ranks.
Another important topic was the use of compromise among lawmakers. Wise also urged students to communicate with their legislators when they are voting age via email, phone call, text, or social media to show their concerns about issues.
Student were engaged throughout Wise's speech and the Adair County School District thanks him for his willingness to come speak to students. - Wes Feese
