Guest Speaker/ElectionGood Morning Northeast I am Mason Burger, over the past month your teachers have been teaching you about politics and the election. On Thursday of this week Willy Reynolds, a former city councilman will come in to talk to us about what running for public office is really like. This will all lead to a school wide vote for who you want to lead our nation. After our day off we will announce who won the school election and compare it to who wins the national election.
