Government 101: Founding Principles to Current Local Practice

Wednesday, March 27 at 6 PM


Seekonk, MA – Is the current state of politics what the writers of the U.S. Constitution had in mind? And how is our local town meeting government relevant to it all? Explore these questions and more in the program Government 101: Founding Principles to Current Local Practice at the Seekonk Public Library on March 27 at 6 PM. You’ll have an opportunity to review the principles, values and institutions of the American government as presented by the Founders and Framers of our Constitution, the building blocks for our future. In addition, we will discuss the importance of the town meeting, an essential New England democratic tradition, that has continued to this day in many New England communities like our own Seekonk. This presentation will be led by Roger Desrosiers, President of the Massachusetts Center for Civic Education, state coordinator for We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution program used in middle and high schools, and Past President of the Massachusetts Council for the Social Studies. Our esteemed presenter will provide the opportunity for you to interact, to discuss and to ask questions relating to these essential aspects of our American government.
