“It was an honor to have so many bright young faces from my district helping my colleagues and me to get important messages during the Senate session,” said Sen. Crane. “I want to thank my pages for taking the initiative to partake in Georgia’s legislative process. Their drive to learn more and be involved in the legislative process reflects their commitment to preserving liberty in our nation.”
Carey Barronton, Will Barronton, Jackson Duncan, Savannah Emerich, Daniel Greco, Jim Long IV, Justin Maloney, Conner Pettigrew, Bonnie Stewart and Max Wilson participated as pages today in the Senate for Sen. Crane.
Paging has been a tradition in Georgia’s government since the early 1800’s. Students 12 and over serve as messengers, delivering notes to legislators while they are in chamber. This experience provides them with hands-on exposure to politics, how a bill becomes a law and the functions of the state legislature.
