As we reach midday on Monday, you can really feel the energy around campus. Classes have started, the second election cycle, this time for county offices, is about over. The first city council meetings have occurred, alliances are being made, planning for future events are underway. The citizens are learning how to work with the legislative process on the local level. The State Central Committees and the House of Representatives have also had their first meetings, laying the groundwork for the work to come this afternoon. You can tell the citizens are not totally sure what’s coming next, but you can also tell that they’re looking forward to it.
