Mayor Spence

Spencer was chosen to be Mayor out of a large group of 5th Grade Middle School Kids as they took a Field Trip to a place called Biz-Town. Each 5th grader gets a "job" in the made-up town of Biz Town. They get paychecks, pay taxes & have duties they must perform that full day according to their individual jobs. There's even news reporters, a big screen & tv's across the town. Mayor Spencer was interviewed a number of times on "TV" & also had to give a few speeches and answer impromptu questions at Town Hall meetings. I want to be like him some day when I grow up.

A Dad of one of the boys from our ward went as a chaperone & reported back to us that Mayor Spencer did a great job. Now that would have been fun to see! We never went on Field Trips like this back in my day but I think it's a GREAT IDEA that the kids get to see what grown ups really do to keep America running each day. Spencer said it was fun but a lot more work than he thought it would be.

Incredible! Spencer looks like he'd make a good (and handsome!) Mayor. There's hope for our country yet! :)
