THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -Kids at Thomasville city schools had a substitute teacher today, the Mayor.

Mayor David Lewis talked to kids in person at Harper Elementary while students miles down the road at Scott Elementary got to listen in on a live video feed.

Kids asked questions and learned a lot about local and Presidential politics.

"I learned more about what the Mayor does, and how he is elected. And how he helps our community and what he thinks we should do for our community," says 5th grader Karla Abrams.

CNS services also made a website for kids to cast their own vote for President in a mock election. The results will be tallied up on Tuesday. Feedback
