Foreign Exchange Student Tour


I had a fun time as a council representative, helping with the tour of Chinese foreign exchange students¬† ¬†this afternoon. It started in the Bakersfield City Council Chambers before moving into the Council Caucus Room and Mayor’s office.

There were both middle school and high school students on their trip from various places in China, who are exploring American government municipalities from San Francisco to Southern California, on their way to Disneyland.

I was thankful that I had an opportunity to talk to them about our local government, along with the constitutional freedoms that we have and enjoy within the USA.
