PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Port Chester High School junior Reanna Rosenfeld has been accepted to attend the Student Inside Albany Conference scheduled for May 21-24.
She will represent the Rye, Rye Brook, Port Chester chapter of the League of Women Voters.
The conference is an “intensive four-day training experience designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, enacted and changed in New York State,” according to the League of Women Voters, sponsors of the event. Participants hear from legislators and observe Senate and Assembly sessions.
Rosenfeld will also have the opportunity to meet with and shadow state Sen. George Latimer and Assemblyman Steve Otis while she is in Albany.
“I’m really interested in politics and government,” said Rosenfeld. “Last year I went to DC with the Religious Action Center, and I loved it. I thought the Student Inside Albany Conference was a really good opportunity to learn about government at the state level, and when my guidance counselor, Ms. Cafaldo, posted the application, I decided to apply.”
