2017-18 WOODCLIFF LAKE POLITICIAN RECOGNITION SURVEY RESULTS

Since we live in a Republican Democracy, where we elect our leaders to make decisions for us, we decided to see who exactly could identify the people who make the decisions that shape our lives!  Needless to say, the results might shock you. 

Each student in my three current events class was asked to survey 3 or more people above the age of 18 who reside in Woodcliff Lake.  They asked the following questions about their local, state and national representatives. 

In total, we interviewed 112 people.  While this survey is certainly not flawless, it does give us a decent idea about what people know - or don't know about their elected officials!  And not surprisingly, and at the same time rather unfortunate, the results have never been good!   Let's take a look!
