I think this is a fantastic way to meet elected officials while also getting some exercise. It would be interesting to se the mayor and others somewhat outside of their comfort zones; maybe citizens can see what they are really like. Too bad this isn’t advertised more around Middle Tennessee State University, because I’m sure they would get a lot more young voters out there as well. I personally will show up to one of these dates, being a young college student… you’re not as well connected with local government. Not every town or city would have this opportunity to walk with their mayor.
Hopefully this isn’t just a photo opportunity for the politicians, because I’m sure it would be an awesome and less stressful way of getting to know them and also being able to talk to them. Maybe this could be taken further and the mayor could do something on campus like this. Nothing extravagant, just down to earth conversation.
