Excerpt

College students and community leaders joined together at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum on Feb. 21 to take a shot at creating their own version of the federal budget through a workshop called “Principles and Priorities,” created by the Concord Coalition. . . .

Phil Smith, southern regional director and national political director of Concord Coalition, was the main speaker and controller of the event. He introduced the agenda of the workshop and reviewed some basic rules and guidelines for participants to follow. He also talked about the Concord Coalition, and the other types of events they put on to educate the public about federal budget issues.
