Rep. Drew MacEwen hosts Shelton High School senior at the Capitol

Incoming Shelton High School senior Alec Dodge spent a day with Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union, learning about the Legislature, budget process, and what it is like to be a state representative.

“I was happy to have Alec join me at the Capitol for the day and hope he was able to learn more about the legislative process,” said MacEwen. “It's always reassuring to see young people engaging in the process by learning more about state government. Hosting Alec was a great reminder that we are here to work toward a stronger Washington for future generations. We have a lot of issues to tackle in Olympia, but I know our future will be in good hands if we give students the tools to succeed.”

Alec, a Mason County resident, was able to watch votes on the House floor, tour the Capitol, and meet with legislative staff to learn about their job duties.

The 2015 second special session is scheduled to adjourn June 27.
