Mock City Council

Each student will be given a role in this simulation. Students will role play the mayor, city council, key City staff and community representatives. The “mock” mayor and council members will be sitting in the elected official’s actual chairs and asking questions of staff, and MYC participants will serve as representatives of the community and will be speaking for and against two ordinances which will be considered surrounding commercial cannabis sales and indoor growing in the City. Those assigned to “audience members pro and con” play a key role in our simulation. You need to form an opinion behind the pro or con role you will be assigned and be prepared to sway the City Council. Several City Leaders will be joining us for the session and we appreciate their support in this final event!
