This week, Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R,C,I-Corning) was pleased to welcome Karilyn Rutledge from Bradford Central to the Capitol.
Rutledge shadowed Palmesano for the day and enjoyed a unique glimpse into the legislative process. She attended an Education Committee meeting with Palmesano and witnessed legislative debates on the floor of the Assembly.
The intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm that Karilyn displayed on her visit to Albany are a testament to the bright future she has ahead of her, said Palmesano. She is a credit to her family, her school and the entire League of Women Voters program. I wish her the best of success as she pursues her future goals.
Rutledge is a senior at Bradford Central. She balances her academic coursework and affiliation with the league with a part-time job at the Corning Museum of Glass. She plans to attend Corning Community College in the fall.
