FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

AUGUSTA – With the Second Regular Session of the 128th Legislature just around the corner, Senator Rod Whittemore (R-Somerset) would like to once again invite all area students to join him at the State House for a day to serve as a page in the Maine Senate.

As a page, students have the opportunity to participate in a legislative session, delivering messages and distributing documents within the Senate Chamber.

“This is a very popular program with young Mainers,” Senator Whittemore said. “In addition to helping legislators out during the session, they also get to see the State House and learn about how their government works. I would highly recommend it to any student.”

The program, which lasts for one day’s session, is open for students from third grade through high school. The Legislature schedules pages for each session day, which this begins on Wednesday, January 3 and will conclude on April 18.

For more information, please contact Senator Whittemore’s office at 207-287-1505.
