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.
