The League of Women Voters of the North Country announces the fourth annual Meet Your State Legislators (MYSL) event to be held on Saturday morning, March 15, 2014, 9:30 AM-12:00 noon at the Peru Central High School auditorium. For the fourth consecutive year, Senator Betty Little and Assemblywoman Janet Duprey have agreed to assist in educating students from Clinton and Essex Counties about the structure and function of our New York State Senate and Assembly, and this year, Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward (2003-2012) will also participate as a special guest.
The program will consist of these components:
• Welcome and brief introduction of delegates
• Viewing of Students Inside Albany slide show
• Introductions of elected officials, followed by their addresses, Q & A, and photo breaks
• Remarks by Inge Sapp regarding living in a country with no voting rights
Meet Your State Legislators offers both students and the general public a unique educational opportunity to experience non-partisan politics devoid of divisiveness. We encourage the public to join us.
