Mayor Ed Malloy visited Fairfield Middle School on Tuesday, October 12, 2010, as the kickoff to an upcoming 7th grade language arts assignment. 7th graders will all be entering an essay contest sponsored by the Iowa League of Cities. Their essays will start with the phrase "If I were mayor, I would...," and the papers will reflect on how the students would improve the towns where they live.
Mr. Dailey gave the introductions, and the mayor spoke about his job and answered a few questions from students. Now the 7th grade has a much better idea about what a mayor's responsibilities are. Their essays should be sensational!
