Council and Mayor Jones laud Juarez for her “Mayor For A Day” essay result

The Windom City Council and Mayor Dominic Jones recently applauded Windom fourth-grade student Janette Juarez for her essay written for the League of Minnesota Cities “Mayor for A Day” contest.

Janette and her parents came to the council meeting to be recognized and Juarez read her essay for the council. The essay proposed that every home have an emergency button to contact the police, fire and ambulance in an emergency, as not all homes have cell phones. She also proposed in the writing that the city take toddlers into consideration when building parks and playground equipment. She suggested some of the structures are too large and recommended that supports be covered with foam to prevent injury.

The essay won an Honorable Mention from the League of Minnesota Cities.
