ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - In recognition of Catholic Schools Week, Rome Catholic School has invited various politicians into the classrooms to see the work that is being done.

Rome Mayor Joe Fusco spoke to grades seven through 12 on Tuesday about government and getting involved. He says there was one point he wanted the students to remember.

"They can be part of the process," Mayor Fusco said. "It's not this thing that exists downtown or in Albany or in Washington. It's your community. All politics are local."

Rome Catholic School will continue to observe National Catholic Schools Week through Friday, with different speakers scheduled for each day.
