Sen. Moore meets with North High AP government students
Sen. Michael O. Moore, D-Millbury, engaged in an open discussion with Advanced Placement (AP) government and politics students from North High School about the importance of public policy and its impact at the local, state and federal levels.
He also had the opportunity to share his thoughts and insights about serving as an elected official in the state Senate. The AP government and politics course curriculum analyzes political structures and policies of various nations, as well as the political, economic and social challenges each country faces and how they are dealt with on a global scale.
Moore was invited to speak as part of an ongoing effort to introduce the AP students to area legislators and public officials who serve in government.
