[r29] Noblesville residents participate in the legislative process

Entry Description
Noblesville residents participate in the legislative process

STATEHOUSE — Four Noblesville residents had the opportunity to see the state legislature up close by participating in the Adult Page Day program hosted by State Representative Kathy Kreag Richardson (R-Noblesville).

The Adult Page Day program, now in its 22nd year, provides Hamilton County residents over the age of 18 with the opportunity to tour the Statehouse, meet public officials and see the legislative process up close. This year’s pages were also able to sit in on a House Veterans Affairs and Public Safety Committee meeting, meet with Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson and have lunch with Rep. Richardson.

“I host this program every year, so more people can participate in the legislative process. I think it’s great for students to participate as pages, but it’s also important for adults who missed out on the action the first time around to have an opportunity to be on the House floor for session and see the legislative process in action,” said Rep. Richardson. “It offers them the opportunity of seeing everything in person and getting a firmer grasp on what really happens here.”

Noblesville natives Steve Dickover and his wife Tori have participated in the program multiple times. They said their interest in the legislative process and keeping up with political issues keeps them coming back.

“It’s nice to see the process up close instead of just watching from the public gallery or following it through the news,” said Steve. “It’s really interesting to see how the legislative process actually works, and I was very surprised at how easy the legislators are to talk to.”

Diane Flak, a teacher in Westfield, said she, too, was surprised by the manner of the representatives.

“I really enjoyed meeting Representative Richardson and being able to discuss things in a casual manner,” Flak said. “The representatives are people just like us trying to do the best they can for Indiana.”

Lisa Ramsey said she was most surprised by how much the representatives depend on each other when it comes to discussing legislation.

“Each representative seems to have their own specialty,” said Ramsey. “It was really interesting to see how they work together to become more familiar with topics they may otherwise not have known much about.”

All of the participants said they enjoyed their tour of the Statehouse and learning about its rich history and would highly recommend it to their friends and family.

“You need to know what goes on in our state government and see the legislative process first hand,” said Tori Dickover.
