Members of Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas Junior Troop 3537 met with Mayor Harry LaRosiliere in his office located at the Plano Municipal Building on Monday, October 13, 2014. Meeting the Mayor was an honor and a key step for completing their “Inside Government” badge.
Mayor LaRosiliere spoke with the troop regarding how city government is run and how they can be active citizens. The girls then asked questions that ranged from “why did you decide to become mayor” to “can you tell me about your kids.”
After the discussion, the girls pledged to become ambassadors for the city of Plano, as part of the city’s Youth Ambassador Program for which the Mayor awarded each scout a certificate and badge.
After the meeting, Mayor LaRosiliere tweeted:
