Sen. Alting welcomes local student to Statehouse

STATEHOUSE (March 13, 2023) – State Sen. Ron Alting (R-Lafayette) welcomed Lafayette resident and Lafayette Jefferson High School student Matthew Bisciglia to the Statehouse to serve as a Senate page in February.

Pages spend a day at the Statehouse touring the historic building, observing debates from the Senate floor and interacting with their state senator.

"In my role as a senator, it's always exciting to show local students around the Statehouse," Alting said. "This is an experience unlike any other and I applaud Matthew for taking the time to learn the legislative process."

Students in grades six through 12 participate in the page program on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session. Groups serve on Wednesdays.
