Candidates visit LHS

It’s possible the future town, county, city or state government officials
are roaming the hallways of Liberty High School, and a handful of
them are more than prepared after spending time with local town and
county legislators.

With Election Day just a few days away, candidates for the
Sullivan County Legislature and Liberty Town Council took a
special trip to Liberty High School to share their personal
stories with students, encourage them to make the most of their
education, make good decisions and get involved.

Liberty High School seniors attended a special presentation given
by the candidates for the Sullivan County Legislature and Liberty
Town Council. There, they had the opportunity to see things from
the perspective of local government and even offered their own
suggestions on ways to help Liberty and Sullivan County grow and
thrive.

Eighty seniors met with eight candidates and took part in a
round-table discussion and workshop to identify the strengths and
weaknesses of the town of Liberty, as well as the opportunities
and threats that face the area. Often referred to as a SWOT
analysis, the objective of the workshop was to identify the
strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats of the town.
Students took turns sharing their ideas and visions for making a
difference in Liberty.

district’s Facebook page.
