CRESTVIEW — Antioch Elementary School third-graders understand city government a little better thanks to two expert guest speakers.

Crestview Mayor David Cadle and Councilman Thomas Gordon visited the class Monday morning to talk about their responsibilities as city officials and answer students' questions.

 “I learned that there are five people on city council,” said 9-year-old Makayla Cloutier. “You (need to) be at least 18 years old (and a Crestview resident) to be mayor and serve on the council.”

Emily Cypret, 9, said she learned what to do if she wants a stop sign installed along roadways.

“You need to meet with the city council and see if you could get the stop sign put up,” she said. 

 Daniel Kraus said he learned how city officials help improve the country.

“They help make laws to help make us a better country,” he said.
