A middle-aged kestrel looks up from his large oak desk at City Hall as his administrative assistant lets the field trip class into his office...
Ah, you must be Mrs. Ashbacher's third graders! Please, come in, there's plenty of room for all of you! Now, I understand that you're here to learn about the history of our wonderful city. That's excellent to hear; one should never forget the past, lest we be doomed to repeat it.
I suppose I should start by introducing myself! My name is Mayor Stephen Archer. I was born in Concorde, NH, and attended Harvard law school. I took a job at a local law firm out of college, where I met Harold Ashbacher, your teacher's husband, who is now our District Attorney. I've been a proud resident of our fair city since 1994, and mayor since 2010.
Now, if it's all right with you all, I'll let you kids start asking me some questions. Who would like to go first?
