Columbia Third Graders Get Big Lesson in City Government from Mayor Burton

It was a lesson in city government filled with fun, laughter and a lot of good information coming from a man who has a lot to share. Third grade students at Columbia Elementary School had a very special guest visit their classroom to talk about the workings of city government.

West Jordan Mayor Dirk Burton took time out of his busy schedule to stop by, meet the students, and talk about his job as mayor and other jobs in the city like police, fire and parks & recreation. Mayor Burton gave the students a quick lesson in taxes and talked to them about the importance of being kind to one another. The Mayor also took time to answer questions and told students he loves his job because he likes solving problems and making the City of West Jordan a great place to live and work.

Thank you, Mayor Burton, for supporting students and their education by sharing your knowledge, experience and kindness in the classroom.
