It was a pleasure to host Girl Scout Troop 320 at the Bureau’s office in Gray on Nov. 13. Seven scouts attended along with one supportive brother and six parents. I gave them a tour of the Courtroom and the mediation offices, making sure to follow social-distancing guidelines. The topic of the discussion was democracy and the courts. This was covered in a short PowerPoint presentation with a question and answer session.
My session with the scouts is part of their effort to obtain a democracy badge. Before our meeting, they held a Zoom meeting with Sen. Marsha Blackburn and intend to have two future meetings with Attorney Christina Stapleton and Election Commission Administrator Crystal Rogers. Let’s wish them well on their efforts.
