A delegation of 39 middle school students visited City Hall on Friday, January 17. While here, they learned about the role of government, civic engagement, and engaged in a robust discussion about the merits of the Galveston Plan. They also moved a 'bill' through the political process, with four votes Aye and one vote Nay.
The students discussed their views of Portland and remarked that our city is green, healthy, and vibrant. They particularly liked the attention to parks, our crown jewel. These new Portland ambassadors will take much with them on their return to Shanghai.
