COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) hosted senior citizens from the Mayfield Village Senior Center as well as the Village of Valley View at the Ohio Statehouse as part of the Senior Legislator for a Day program.

The program gives seniors the opportunity to see how government works on a state level and an in-depth look into the legislative process. The group participated in a mock legislative voting session in the House chamber and took a VIP tour of the Statehouse including the Governor’s ceremonial office.

“It was thoroughly enjoyable and my sincere pleasure to be able to invite the 'young at heart' constituents down to the Statehouse to have a chance to see exactly how their state government operates in the Peoples' House," Rep. Anielski said. “It is my hope all the seniors now have a greater understanding of how a bill becomes a law and how to better voice their beliefs and opinions through the legislative process.”


“Seniors from Mayfield Village and Valley View thoroughly enjoyed participating in the ‘Senior Legislator for a Day’ program,” said Donna Heath, Mayfield Village Senior Program Coordinator. “Rep Anielski chose interesting topics of controversy for the mock legislative voting session. She kept the seniors actively engaged as they explored the process of amending and voting on House Bills. We appreciate having the opportunity to meet and interact with our State Representative.”
