Road Commissioners and Petitioning for Change

Students study the position of road commissioners in Maine and the process of bringing a referendum to vote. Students research this information for three Maine towns. Then they write a position paper which addresses some aspect of the road commissioner's job. As teams, the students then choose a position they'd like to see changed , write a referendum, and explore ways of bringing it to vote.
