State Rep. Andrea Schroeder of Independence Township welcomed Aaron Wright to the state Capitol Wednesday. The 2011 Clarkston High School graduate job-shadowed her during the day after expressing interest in learning more about the legislative process.
Aaron attended meetings in the lawmaker’s office, took a tour of the Capitol in the morning and sat with Rep. Schroeder on the House floor while legislators conducted business.
Growing up in the Clarkston area, Aaron graduated from Central Michigan University in 2015 and will be working at Camp Miniwanca, run by the American Youth Foundation.
“It is great to see young people like Aaron interested in state government and wanting to learn more about the legislative process,” Rep. Schroeder said. “I look forward to seeing all of the great things he will accomplish and the positive impact he will have on our community.”
State Rep. Andrea Schroeder was joined by Clarkston native Aaron Wright on the House floor at the state Capitol Wednesday.
Rep. Andrea Schroeder today said a plan soon to be introduced in the Michigan House offers a framework to improve the state’s response for the remainder of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“These new measures are a significant step forward to keep people safe and provide the help they need during what continues to be a very challenging time – in Oakland County and all across Michigan,” said Schroeder, of Independence Township. “This is a smart strategy that improves the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic across the board – helping families put food on the table, pay their bills, and stay healthy.”
