Recently, Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-21st AD) met with Sam Salazar, a senior, and Dante Eusebio, a junior, at Baldwin High School. The students met with Curran in his district office to prepare for their upcoming Mock Session in Albany to be hosted by the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute of which both students are members. The students will debate bills covering several topics, including the DREAM fund, establishing New York as a “sanctuary state,” and preventing wage discrimination. The Mock Session will be held March 10-12.
“I had a great afternoon with both Sam and Dante as they asked questions about legislation and procedures in preparation for their upcoming Mock Session,” said Curran. “Both of these students are very bright individuals and have plans to become lawyers and legislators. It’s very exciting to see so many students these days taking an interest in policy and government, and I think the future is in great hands.”
