STATEHOUSE- State Representative Tom Saunders (R- Lewisville) was pleased to meet with five fifth grade classes from Hagerstown Elementary Thursday at the Statehouse.
“It is important for students to get a firsthand look at how their state government works,” said Rep. Saunders. “It’s a very educational experience coming to the Statehouse to see the legislative bodies debate various bills, in addition to taking in the history of this great building. I’m glad I got to share the experience with the Hagerstown classes today.”
Rep. Saunders presented the students and teachers of these classes with a state flag that has been flown over the Statehouse and participated in a tour of the Statehouse with the classes.
“The students were very engaged and curious in their state government,” said Rep. Saunders. “I very much enjoyed answering their questions and talking to them about their ideas; it is one of my favorite parts of this job in having the opportunity to meet with different groups of constituents here at the Statehouse and back in the district.”
