Rep. Klippert hosts teen from Kennewick as part of the House Page Program

Rep. Brad Klippert, R-Kennewick, sponsored a student from the 8th Legislative District as a page in the state House of Representatives. Elsie Partlow spent a week in Olympia assisting Klippert with several responsibilities and learning about the legislative process.

Elsie attends Chinook Middle School in Kennewick, where she's currently in the eighth grade. During her week working in the House Page Program, Elsie attended page school every day to learn about the three branches of state government, and how they work to create and enact laws. She also helped Klippert and other state representatives with various duties vital to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“There are many things about this job that can be taxing. But working with the young men and women in the House Page Program always lightens our load and brightens my day,” said Klippert. “I want to say thank you to Elsie for her service to the House during the week she joined us. It was a pleasure working with her and I wish her the best going forward.”

To become a page, applicants must be between the ages of 14 and 16, have a legislative sponsor, and receive written permission from their parents, as well as their school. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.
