Columbus - 

State Representatives Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) and Mike Dovilla (R–Berea) were joined in Columbus by winners of the “Legislator for a Day” program.


“It was my pleasure to be able to invite these students down to have a chance to see how their state government works,” Rep. Anielski said.  “Hopefully these students have a better understanding of how a bill becomes a law.”


“I enjoyed having the opportunity to welcome several young citizens and their families to the People’s House,” said Rep. Dovilla. “This innovative program provided a hands-on experience in representative democracy for our children, and I am encouraged by the continued enthusiasm and high level of participation we have seen throughout the district the past four years.” 


The program, which is a reading contest through local libraries, gives students in grades K-6 the opportunity to see how government works on a state level and an in-depth look into the legislative process. The students participated in a mock legislative voting session in the House Chambers, took a VIP tour of the Statehouse that included the Governor’s office, and had lunch.

We must take into consideration the perspectives of all interested parties to ensure health care remains affordable and accessible for everyone.
