First Session

No rest from Scotland. Our first session began with a presentation in Edinburgh City Chambers. Mr Kenny McKraig provided an overview of How Scotland is Governed. Only 32 Municipal local councils in the entire country. ONE police service and ONE Fire service. The country is on the verge voting on a referendum to become independent from England. Kenny provide a brief overview of the political parties and who is currently in office. He even provided a pop quiz to test the knowledge of the group regarding the session. In addition, the City of Edinburgh provided pins as a gift as we were serenaded through the window with bagpipes in the courtyard plaza. Up early in the Morning to head toward the Scottish Borders and Selkirk. Then we stay the evening in Drybourgh.

  1. I am so envious. I would have been with you if it hadn’t landed during my Mayoral Election. Have fun, learn lots, and be safe!
