Did you know that Indiana law (IC 36-4-13) allows a municipality to appoint a Legislative Youth Advisor to help represent the interests of young people in the community? Although they have no voting power, the Youth Advisor, chosen from young people under the age of 18, can be an ambassador and share the unique concerns and ideas of their peers. What a great way to engage our Charlestown youth in the health of our city! A Youth Advisor would be an excellent resource in fostering Community Cohesion and in improving Transparency in our government.
This year vote for a candidate who has a plan to improve programs for our youth! Remember Treva in November!
