Local Scouts Hear from PV Mayoral Candidates, Earn Democracy Badge


Pleasant View mayoral candidates Bill Anderson and Heather Hardwick spoke to local Girl Scouts on Tuesday, October 6.

Each candidate had the opportunity to address Pleasant View Troop 368 in a meeting designed by troop leaders to teach the girls about local and national government.


The political-themed event earned troop members, who range in age from six to 11, a democracy badge.


In addition to asking why each candidate wanted to be mayor, the girls tackled topics like parks, schools, salary, and women’s rights during the Q&A portion of the evening.


At the end of the meeting, each girl got to cast a ballot for either Anderson or Hardwick and Joe Biden or Donald Trump in a mock election.
