State Senator Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) recently hosted Salisbury’s Brownie Troop 72433 for a visit to the Massachusetts State House.
The troop had the opportunity to tour the State House and meet with the Senator, as well as State Representative Jim Kelcourse (R-Amesbury). DiZoglio brought the scouts into the Senate Chamber, where they sat in the seats of legislators, as the Senator explained how ideas become laws. The troop then engaged in a debate, moderated by DiZoglio, over a piece of legislation.
“This is our next generation of leaders, so it is important that we encourage them to be actively involved in the democratic process early on,” said DiZoglio. “The girls were given the chance to experience what a day in the life of a legislator looks like and engaged in a discussion on a real-life bill that impacts citizens of the Merrimack Valley. We had a blast!”
