Sen. Eric P. Lesser visited East Longmeadow High School on Nov. 16 to discuss the importance of youth involvement and the political process.
“It’s always inspiring to see young people excited about our political process. My interest in public service began in high school, so it’s exciting to see these students get involved at such a young age,” Sen. Lesser said.
Sen. Lesser’s visit came as the students were preparing for the Model Congress competition, to be held January 8-9, 2016 at American International College in Springfield.
Sen. Lesser spoke about his experiences as the youngest member of the Massachusetts Senate, and offered advice on getting involved in the political process at both the state and national level.
