MERRILL - The way politics works these days concerns Dave Obey. But the former northern Wisconsin congressman hopes America's next generation will make government work better.
Obey joined dozens of other presenters at a Law Fair at Prairie River Middle School in Merrill on Friday. They aimed to get middle schoolers thinking about government, politics, law, and law enforcement.
"If you get even a handful of young people who decide they're going to start paying attention to the government, and they're going to get involved, then it's worth it," said Obey.
