A Young Democrats of Rhode Island Board Member (We’ve reached out to Rep Ackerman for proper id)  rose in favor of  Cumberland State Representative Mia Ackerman’s Legislation allowing 16 & 17 year old teenagers to participate, as voters, in School Board elections. Republican  Representative Brian Newberry & Independent Rep Jon Brien provided spirited questions/remarks in counterpoint to Rep McGaw’s implicit support. What. Say. You? What rights should be accorded to “almost legal adults”?
