[r54] Saunders Hosts Adult Page Day for Constituents (3/22/2011)

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Start Date: 3/22/2011 All Day
End Date: 3/22/2011

STATEHOUSE- Rep. Tom Saunders (R-Lewisville) hosted a successful Adult Page Day on Monday for constituents from House District 54. The Adult Page Day provided an opportunity for local constituents to speak with various elected officials and spend the day with Rep. Saunders.

"Our Adult Page Day was a real success, with 14 pages attending today's event," Rep. Saunders said. "It was a great opportunity for them to see the daily activities that take place at the Statehouse and to spend the day learning, firsthand, about their state government."

Pages had the opportunity to speak with Justice Stephen David, Treasurer Richard Mourdock and Attorney General Greg Zoeller. In addition, they received a tour of the Statehouse and sat in to watch session activity. Lunch with Rep. Saunders was also a part of the day.

The Indiana House has enabled many Hoosier students to experience the legislative process as student pages for many years. The Adult Page Day, however, gives adult citizens the same chance to participate.

If interested locals were unable to attend this year's Adult Page Day, there will be another opportunity next legislative session.
