Ridgefield student helps Rep. Liz Pike in state House

Clark County native Justin Lindsay recently served in Olympia as a page in the state House of Representatives. Sponsored by Rep. Liz Pike, R-Camas, Justin spent the week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor.

Justin helped to co-write a bill with another page and presented it during a mock committee hearing. Focusing on closing the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) job gap in Washington state, his bill would have offered partial scholarships for community college students majoring in STEM related fields by increasing the tax on marijuana. Justin convinced the mock committee group of fellow pages to pass the bill.

Justin attends Ridgefield High School, enjoys running, and is involved in speech and debate. He is the 15-year-old son of  Justin and Jennifer Lindsay of Ridgefield.

To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House page program, visit: http://www.leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx.
