Nespelem teen serves as legislative page for Rep. Joel Kretz

Students ages 14-16 are eligible to take part in the week-long program in Olympia

Andrew McClure, son of Joy and D. David McClure, made his way to Olympia the week of Feb. 1 to serve as a legislative page in Washington State House of Representatives. Rep. Joel Kretz, R-Wauconda, sponsored the teen.

Andrew is a 9th-grader at Lake Roosevelt High School. He worked in the House delivering documents to lawmakers and staff, as well as attending page school to learn about our form of government and the legislative process.
