Raia Spends the Day with "Student Shadow"

July 26, 2005

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,C,I,WF-East Northport) and his "student shadow" for a day, Phillip Leggio, discuss legislation that was passed near the end of the recent legislative session. Phillip, President of the Elwood Middle School Student Council, "shadowed" Raia as the assemblyman met with constituents and conducted legislative business. Phillip, who said he aspires to elected office, gained valuable insight into the daily life of a state assemblyman and the legislative process.
