WHEREAS, youth have played an important role in our nation’s history and development, and yet play a disproportionately small role in government; and

 

WHEREAS, there are over 104 million Americans age 24 and under, making up just over one third of the U.S. population and representing the potential and the future of America; and

This in addition to providing the president and his or her cabinet with a bipartisan source of information on the concerns of youth across the country, as well as their ideas for resolving them; and

We need to do some budget cuts and she needs to know what other board members ideas are. She asked what the board members for their ideas. Wolf stated that she has been driving around the city for weeks and she finds many things that are in bad shape. She would like to purpose that we cut some hours and hire someone to clean the clinic because they are not happy with how it is being cleaned. That we hire someone to take care of the park, the city hall and the dump. Because Melvin is getting so old and he is not able to take care of the dump. The dump is full of weeds and Frank burned the dump and that helped. Wolf thinks that we need to hire a maintenance person for so many hours a week to take over of all four jobs.
