2nd Grade Students Meet the Mayor

Today, the second graders at Walter Bickett Elementary School welcomed a special guest, Monroe’s mayor, Bobby Kilgore. Mayor Kilgore spoke with the students about city government and his role as an elected official. He also shared information about the city council and the different departments within the city’s jurisdiction. The students were given an opportunity to ask the mayor questions. When asked, “What is the biggest issue facing Monroe,” the Mayor said, “Our infrastructure.” People need to be able to move from one place to another without all the traffic.
