Mayor teaches kids about government

Valdosta - Some South Georgia students got a lesson in city government from their mayor Tuesday.

Valdosta Mayor John Fretti talked to third graders at S.L. Mason Elementary about how a city operates. The students have been studying communities and learned some valuable lessons from the mayor.

"To become a mayor you have to work hard and you have to read and go to college," said Alexis Nelson.

Several students said the mayor's speech inspired them to become city leaders one day.
