Representative Tim Butler visited Mount Pulaski High School
yesterday morning and spoke to students about government issues. He
met with the students in the cafeteria and touched on topics
including the Illinois budget problems, pensions, unions, gun laws,
presidential candidates, MAP grants and Common Core.

Government to the seniors, "State Representative Tim Butler spoke to

they were able to see how serious our seniors were taking
Representative Butler's appearance."

with the representative as he even put on a Mount Pulaski Toppers
baseball hat and took a "selfie" with the group.
Representative Butler closed his question and answer session by
urging students to get involved in their communities and to get out
