Area students invited to serve as honorary Senate pages

Dec 22, 2017

Augusta — With the second regular session of the 128th Legislature just around the corner, Senate President Michael Thibodeau, R-Waldo, once again invites 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.

“The pages are a huge help to the legislators,” Sen. Thibodeau said. “Things often happen very quickly on the Senate floor, and the pages play a key role in helping lawmakers communicate with one another. It’s also a great experience for young people to come to the State House.”

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, beginning Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2018, and concluding April 18, 2018.
