Instructions
Find an article in your local  newspaper about a local policy issue that affects you. For example, an  article concerning your county’s decision to privatize your trash  collection service. Summarize the article and explain how this issue  affects you. Is the article neutral? Why or why not? How might you  influence this policy in the future?

Be  sure to include a scanned copy of the article in your submission in  addition to citations. There are several free scannable apps on the  market such as Scannable. If printing is an obstacle, you may include a  hyperlink to the article. However, if the link breaks or can not be  accessed the burden falls on you to produce that article or to risk  losing points.

Articles may not be more than one month old.
