Andersson Visits Batavia High School Government Classes

State Representative Steve Andersson was back in the classroom this week to meet with students studying government at Batavia High School. He spent time speaking to two different classes about the nature of the legislature in Springfield, and the role of a State Representative.

Visiting schools and talking with students has always been important to Rep. Andersson, to help provide students with added insight into state government—especially while they are studying it in school.

“Today we were able to discuss meaningful aspects of serving as a state lawmaker, and it was encouraging to hear their thoughts and questions, but most importantly to help create an open dialogue, so they know their Representative is available to them,” said Andersson.

The conversation focused on producing good government—starting from the election process, and continuing to bipartisanship in the legislature. The students were eager to ask questions about all aspects of governing, and the Representative was impressed with their engagement.

Representative Andersson prefers to keep the dialogue going with students, and looks forward to some of them participating in the General Assembly’s Page for the Day program during spring session in Springfield.
