OLYMPIA — Lucia Carli served as a page in the Washington State Senate during the week of March 25, 2019.

Pages are sponsored by the senator from their legislative district. Sen. David Frockt (D-Seattle) sponsored Carli’s week in the Legislature.

“It was a privilege to host Lucia at the Capitol this week,” Frockt said. “I hope that she enjoyed her time with the Legislature.”

The page program offers a hands-on opportunity for students to find out how state government works. The educational experience is furthered by guest speakers. It also includes classes with topics such as budget writing and how a bill becomes a law — which culminates in pages creating their own bills in a mock committee setting.

Carli particularly enjoyed her time spent on the senate floor during the week. She liked getting to see how everything flows and everyone’s jobs come together.

“I loved all of it,” Carli said. “The floor was amazing, the pictures were fun, and I liked getting to eat lunch with Senator Frockt a lot.”

Pages also have the opportunity to work on the Senate floor. Their maroon coats and credentials allow them access to all parts of the Capitol Campus.

Carli is in 8th grade at Kellogg Middle School. At school she participates in track, jazz band, and plays the clarinet. In her free time she likes to listen to music, practice her archery, and read poetry.
