WOODBRIDGE – Students from seven Woodbridge-area high schools will get a first-hand look at the daily workings of municipal government on Tuesday, May 18, when Mayor John E. McCormac and the Woodbridge Municipal Council host the annual “Youth in Government” Day at Woodbridge Town Hall.
Sponsored by the township’s Recreation Department, the program brings students to Town Hall for an inside look at municipal government. The students will assume the role of the mayor, municipal council members and administration staff; will attend an administration staff meeting; conduct a council meeting; and attend municipal court proceedings.
Participating students, all juniors, are selected by their social science teachers on the basis of leadership abilities, interest in government, and ideas for community participation. This year’s schools include: Colonia High School, John F. Kennedy High School, Woodbridge High School, Mother Seton High School, St. Joseph’s High School, Bishop Ahr High School and Union Catholic High School.
