3 Poulsbo students serve as legislative pages
POULSBO — Three Poulsbo homeschool students served as pages in the state House of Representatives the week of Feb. 3.
Abby Brandt was sponsored by state Rep. Drew Hansen, D-Bainbridge Island. Abby is the daughter of Heidi Brandt and Brian Brandt of Poulsbo. She is a member of 4-H. Jonathan Sedy was sponsored by state Rep. Sherry Appleton, D-Poulsbo. Jonathan is the son of Janet Sedy and Gene Sedy of Poulsbo.
Lydia Sedy was also sponsored by Appleton. Lydia is the daughter of Janet Sedy and Gene Sedy of Poulsbo. She is a cadet in the Civil Air Patrol and the cadet commander of the Peninsula Composite Squadron at Bremerton National Airport. She is also a track and cross country athlete.
According to the state House website, young people from across the state have served as pages for the Washington state House of Representatives since 1891. Page duties are varied. They range from ceremonial tasks, such as presenting the flags; to operational chores, like distributing amendments during legislative sessions. Each job is considered vital to the efficient operation of the Legislature.
As the week-long experience draws to a close and pages return to their schools and communities, the Legislature hopes that pages will share their experiences and observations with others in an effort to contribute to a more universal understanding of the legislative process.
