My Own Town – My 9 year old daughter’s take on what if she was the mayor of the town as part of a Saturday afternoon project.
My town will have

- Parks, schools, offices, hospitals, police and fire stations,veterinary hospitals
- Homes: apartments , townhomes, condominiums
- Orphanage, graveyards, animal homes
- Shops: target, the farmarket, toysrus/babyrus, petco
How to run the town?
- In Parks, gather all the people of the community and make them maintain the park
- Offices, schools etc. – check if they are running well and have the officers maintain the place
- Shops – treat the customers well
How to appoint the team (team to help run the town along with the Mayor) ?
- Generosity Test
- Recycling and Compost Test
- Animal Care Test
- Honesty Test
How to communicate with the people of the town?
- Hang up signs around the town which tell about the situation .
- Write blogs and post it on Facebook, twitter etc.
- Be on T.V. saying things about the situation.
- Have a newspaper writer write my speech.
- Give speeches in parks.
- Have my own website:- http://www.mayorcontact/idea
I would hold a debate before the people vote with all the candidates and then she would ask “Will you vote for me?”
