There's Hope For Us Yet
For most people, attending a public meeting is right up there with a root canal, especially on a gorgeous June summer night, with the sun still beckoning. But get this. Brayden Hough, a Wolf School scholar who has already attended a meeting to fulfill a scouting requirement, asked his father to bring him back. And he had lots of questions. Where's the Mayor? Sitting at a table in front of Council. Who's that man in the middle? That's Council President Willie Reynolds? What does he do? Teach in Allentown. Then why isn't he on Allentown Council? You have to live in the City.
His father, ArtsQuest Event Services Director Scott Hough, wanted to go for a ride in a squad car. Brayden seemed more interested in Robert's Rules of Order.
