Mia Weiss, a freshman at the Center School in Seattle, served as a page with the Washington State Senate the week of March 6. Sen. Joe Nguyễn (D-Seattle) sponsored her week at the legislature. The page program offers a week of interactive learning about how state government works. Pages get to sit in on committee hearings, watch floor debates, and deliver papers for Senate staff. Weiss has been interested in the program since elementary school and has an interest in politics and government. She said her favorite part of the program was watching senators debate legislation.
