The votes have been tallied, and the results are in.
For two classes at Seymour-Redding Elementary School, this year’s election isn’t between Democrats and Republicans, and it won’t decide who will be the country’s next president.
Being too young to vote in the real election, the fourth- and fifth-graders created their own race, pitting Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman, Police Chief Bill Abbott and Fire Chief Brad Lucas against one another on an issue dear to the kids’ hearts — cookies.
The classes interviewed each “candidate” to find out their favorite childhood cookie recipe and then partnered with local bakery Take the Cake for a one-of-a-kind project, called Taste of the Town. On Sept. 25, the public was invited to stop by the bakery to taste the three cookies and vote on their favorite.
