Activists of all ages take Olympia!

Citizen activists come in all shapes, sizes, and ages! Yesterday afternoon, Representative Mary Helen Roberts had the pleasure of meeting with some very young and equally adorable elementary school students.
Students from King’s Elementary in Seattle sat down with Rep. Roberts and asked hard-hitting questions, such as “What bill is your favorite?”
For those who can’t make the trip to Olympia, Rep. Roberts often visits classrooms throughout her district.
In fact, just last November, Rep. Roberts visited Meadowdale Elementary in Lynnwood to see first-hand how budget cuts are affecting classrooms. KING 5’s Mimi Jung covered Rep. Roberts’ trip, and the segment is available here.
