COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently welcomed fourth grade students and their parents from Lewis Elementary School, Parkside Elementary School and Roxbury Elementary School to the Statehouse to participate in her “Legislator for a Day” program. This Legislator for a Day program gives students the opportunity to see how government works on a state level and an in-depth look into the legislative process. The students participated in a mock legislative voting session in the House chambers, took a VIP tour of the Statehouse, and had lunch. While on the tour, the group had a chance to meet with Governor John Kasich, who stressed the importance of keeping up with their studies and to always be a friend to others.
