State Representative Vivian Flowers recently hosted a pre-session Town Hall meeting at Dollarway High School. She met with seniors and discussed what their concerns and ideas are for the community and city. According to Representative Flowers' social media post, “They (the students) eagerly shared their ideas and concerns about the city’s infrastructure, developing Lake Saracen, and creating activities in the area…I met with all the seniors and they were awesome. Anyone who believes that young people don’t know or care about what’s going on is sadly mistaken.”
