Editor's note: From Mayor Brad Tabke's blog.
I am so lucky to be in the position I am in Shakopee! Right before Christmas, I got a couple of fat envelopes filled with letters from students at Sweeney Elementary. They were learning about Mayors and local government by reading a couple of books and they decided to write me letters asking what it is like being Mayor of Shakopee.
Many of the kids live in Bonnevista Terrace, a mobile home park in Jackson Township outside the city limits.
These kids are Shakopee’s future and I am glad they are learning about government!
