The Old Town Council Building
Remember: democracy is like these walls, it harkens back to Greece and Rome.
Remember: politics is people discussing how their society should be governed.
Remember: gather in coffee shops, read newspapers, argue.
Remember: to be a citizen in the city is to walk its streets.
– Lucey Bowen
