National Grassroots Director Jeff Thiebert facilitated three sessions of Principles and Priorities with constituents of Congressman John Carney. The Congressman participated in the exercise and interacted with the audience. The sessions were held in Georgetown, Dover and the Newcastle areas of Delaware.
Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country. In it, participants make decisions about the best combination of program spending and tax policies to match with their larger sense of what the principles behind our budgets should be and what priorities the government should place at the forefront of fiscal decision-making.
