Assemb. Andrew Raia, R-East Northport, was recently visited by Cub Pack 232 from Norwood Ave School, a Webelos Den.
The children interviewed Raia, who helped explain the governmental process so the scouts could earn their Citizenship Pins, a stepping stone for young scouts en route to the Boy Scout Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the Nation and Citizenship in the World Merit Badges.
“To see children taking such an interest in their state government gives me immense pride and hope for the future of our community,” said Raia.
“These fine boys should be commended for taking the time to learn the importance of establishing an open line of communication with their government officials, and learning to use their representatives as resources for the community.”
