Rep. Dan Griffey sponsors four students as pages in the Washington State House of Representatives

Rep. Dan Griffey sponsored four students as pages in the Washington State House of Representatives over the first six weeks of the 2023 legislative session. The students are:

  • Addy McLaughlin | Homeschool | January 9-13
  • Charles Winkler | North Mason High School | January 23-27
  • Aaron Kilbury | North Mason High School | February 6-10
  • Ashley Abbott | Pope John Paul II High School | February 13-17

Each student assisted the Washington State House of Representatives with duties on the chamber floor, made deliveries on the Capitol Campus, and supported member offices. They also attended Page School where they learned more about the Legislature and legislative process.

“It’s great to be back in person on the Capitol Campus so students from across our state can again experience their Legislature. The House Page Program offers a fun and educational experience for our youth who are interested in the legislative process,” said Griffey, R-Allyn. “I’m proud to have sponsored these students and want to thank them for their efforts. Their work was important and appreciated.”

House pages work a 40-hour week, earn a stipend of $50 a day, and can earn up to 20 hours of community service.

To serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives, students must be at least 14 years of age and have not reached their 17th birthday. The Washington State Legislature is making a one-time exception this year. The week of April 2-7 will be designated for students who are 17-18 years old and were unable to previously participate due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2023 legislative session began on January 9 and is scheduled to end April 23.
