This May I went to Albany with the Student Council of my school. Our Student Council raises money for charities and plans fun activities for the students.

When the students in our school ran for office, we gave speeches explaining why we should be elected to office. Todd Kaminski, our State Senator came to hear our speeches.

Sen. Kaminski was inspired by our speeches and invited us to Albany to see the New York State government in action. We had a great time.

First, we went to the Legislative building. We looked around in most of the rooms.

We talked to Sen. Kaminski and to Brian Curran, one of our Assemblymen.

After that we toured the Senate and Assembly chamber. Then we went back to the Senate chamber and our school, Robert W. Carbonaro, was recognized by Sen. Kaminski.

We had an awesome time and our school bonded, but besides that, we learned a lot about our government and how our Student Council is a lot different than our state government.

    This is a very interesting review. I thought it was so cool that the state senator came to your school. When you told us about going to New Jersey to see New York state government in action, I was like wow. I am so jealous. Thanks for sharing. ;).
