Join Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10), Athens Mayor Kelly Girtz, and The Concord Coalition on November 7, 2019 to participate in “Principles and Priorities,” an interactive federal budget exercise. The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lay Park Community Center Gymnasium in Athens.
Citizens must register in advance to participate in the event.
This two-hour activity challenges citizens to play the role of a lawmaker for a day, reviewing and voting on a wide range of budget proposals involving entitlement programs, defense, health care, discretionary spending, and taxes. Working in small groups, participants will debate over everything from changes in Social Security to how many nuclear submarines the Navy needs.
Registration is limited to fifty people and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
