ECC Students Grill Maplewood Elected Leaders
A student in Ms. Holliday's class posed perhaps the most astute question of the morning to Maplewood Councilwoman and Deputy Mayor Karen Wood: "How do you pay for stuff when it's an emergency?"
The MRH Early Childhood Center welcomed Maplewood Mayor Barry Greenberg, along with council members Wood, Eleanor Pardini, Jennifer Schmidt, Shawn Faulkingham and Sandi Phillips to speak individually in various classrooms throughout the building. The city hall leaders fielded questions about how laws and ordinances are created, how citizens' tax money is used for police and fire protection, road maintenance and sidewalks... among many other topics.
The in-class civics lesson was organized by 1st/2nd grade teacher Alaina Frizzi.
