Mitchell talked to Michigan history, government, and economics students and took questions last Friday afternoon in the library.

“The students had good questions for Congressman Mitchell,” said Scott Coats, a high school social studies teacher.

“They asked about the government shutdown and the cause, DACA and dreamers, help with college tuition-technical schools, the Paris Accord, Net Neutrality and his reasons for going into politics.

“The Congressman answered all of the questions in a straight forward no-nonsense manner. He seemed to be very honest with the students even when they disagreed on certain topics.”

Coats said, “In light of the recent school shootings, Congressman Mitchell had a very frank and honest discussion with the students regarding gun control.”
