October 8th- Citizenship in the Community – Government official interview

As part of the requirement for the Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge, Troop 60 interviewed Natchitoches Parish Council Member Chris Paige.

Scouts learned about the role of the parish council and the responsibilities of the council members. They asked Mr. Paige several questions regarding the position including the best and worse parts of the job and why he chose to run for the position. They discussed the controversy of giving local corporations tax exempt status. They asked about existing programs for the parishes’ underprivileged. And they asked Mr Paige some personal questions about his hobbies and history with scouts. It was a very good learning experience. Troop 60 appreciates Councilman Paige taking the time to meet with them and helping them grow in their knowledge of local government.
