Our 8th grade journalism class at Jefferson Middle School visited the State Capital to talk to some of the representatives and senators about Senate Memorial 9. Senate Memorial 9 is important because the pollinators (mostly bees) are dieing. We as a class were trying to pass Senate Memorial 9, which was asking anyone with landscape to plant eco and Native friendly plants. We were also asking the governor to have a pollinator awareness week.
We would like to thank the representatives for not only listening to us, but for passing the memorial. Thank you Didi Feldman, Danice Picraux, And Gail Casey. Thank you, Senator Cisco Mcsorly, for taking the time to talk to us. We would like to thank Judy and Daisy, without you finding our way through the round house and finding the right people to talk to, would have been impossible! Lastly thank you Gadi Swartz for being so fun, telling us everything we needed to know, showing us around, and talking to us!
