Members of the Local Leaders club were provided a poll that consisted of current climate change issues, in which they were given a task to rank each issue based on its importance and relevance in their lives. Here is a demonstration of how the Peardeck poll was conducted:
Members were given three sets of issues with five topics, in which they had to rank from one (least important) to five (most important). Here is an example of how the poll was organized. The above picture is an overlaid view of the responses, however each participant only saw his or her own ranking when taking the poll.
The destructive California wildfires seemed relentless to many, so our club was surveyed to see how concerned they were about the fact that the frequency of these wildfires could increase.
As the presidential elections approached, Local Leaders members were surveyed on who they think has the better environmental plan and why. The following infographic displays the results and shares some of our member's thoughts:

In order to understand Pleasanton we must look at local government, which has two main components. In an interview with Sean Welsh, the assistant city manager of Pleasanton, he explained, “City government is made up of two parts; City Council and the Mayor”.

Recently we spoke with Ela M. and Jessie C. about why they joined Local Leaders. Both of them are new members of the Local Leaders. Ela is in the journalism small group and Jessie is in the fundraising small group. Jessie C. said that she found out about the club through our Instagram page which is @avlocaleaders. She said, “I also just got Instagram and I was scrolling through a lot of comments again and I found the Local Leaders Instagram and it looked really interesting.” The reason that Jessie C. chose to join the club is because of the variety of positions available for members. This makes it possible for everyone to find a place in our club. Whether you are interested in video editing or fundraising, there is a place for you in our club. Ela M., another one of the many newcomers of Local Leaders, learned about this club through her English teacher. She was interested in how active they are and their efforts to educate others about important issues, both in Pleasanton and the U.S. as a whole.
