Saratoga Springs politics

This semester, a group of Skidmore students are getting up close and personal with Saratoga Springs politics. The students have not been to any City Council meetings yet, but they have attended debates and many have spoken to candidates. They also read articles in the local newspapers, both what brings in to class and on their own, and blogs. The dozen freshmen will each use one of the dozen candidates running for city office as a case study for a paper assignment. This involves interviewing the candidates and some students have also gone out on the campaign trail with their matches.
