Recently, Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-21st AD) met with students from Baldwin and Freeport High Schools at the Capitol building in Albany. The students came to learn about the legislative process and discuss education funding as well as other budget issues. Baldwin Board of Education members Karyn Reid and Susan Cools accompanied the students to Albany.
“It’s always a pleasure to welcome local students to Albany and to the Assembly Chamber,” said Curran. “I’m excited that our students had the opportunity to visit with us, discuss several legislative issues and witness the Assembly in action. With so many major policy issues facing the state and the nation right now, it has motivated this younger generation to become engaged and be part of the changes that they want to see. As such, coming to Albany is important for these students and I’m truly glad they came.”
