Kenora councillors payed a visit to future ratepayers. Grade 5 students at Pope John Paul II School had the chance to ask questions, and learn about municipal government.
Councillor, and mayoral candidate, Dan Reynard talked about why the visit was important.
"It's like anything. You teach music, you teach art, and you get that into them when they're young it becomes a passion. Unfortunately, not a lot of young people vote en masse and so hopefully by the time they get there they'll realize the importance of that and be part of the process," he said.
Student Lexi Wolke talked about what she took away from the visit.
"I learned why they want to run for this job, and the changes they want to make," she said.
The visit was to help prepare students for a mock election to be held at the school on October 22.
