Students on Team #1 will have a mayor, city council members, park and rec director, audience members etc.. Team #2 will have the the same plus a few members of staff. “City Council members” will be sitting in the actual chairs and asking questions of staff, and the audience members will be speaking for and against a resolution to persuade council.
