About thirty young people gathered yesterday to share their perspectives on Springfield with Elizabeth Clay, Director of the Governor’s office for Commonwealth Corps and Grassroots Governance. These highlights from the discussion (video below) give you a sense of their personalities and priorities. You can also see some tidbits from the conversation on the Governor’s civic engagement blog, and at the end of this story in The Republican. The stories of young people often get told on their behalf–and in unflattering ways. Seeing them speak for themselves makes all the difference. More details about the event here.
