Congratulations Local Kansas Pages for the 77th District!
Rose Hill Middle School sixth grade students Rylee Forred and Elliot Herod enjoyed visiting the State Capitol and being pages for Representative Kristey Williams. Elliot’s Mother Becki Herod was also able to visit with Representative Williams during girls’ page day.
Pages relieve the legislators of the many routine duties that require their time and effort. Pages must be sponsored by a Representative to serve as a page in the House of Representatives, or by a Senator as a page in the Senate. Pages must be 12 years of age or older, dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes since they will be walking up and down five flights of stairs. Use of the elevators is not allowed.
Legislative Chambers are located on the third floor, the House Chamber is in the west wing, and the Senate Chamber is in the east wing.
Parents are responsible for the page’s transportation, meals, lodging expenses and supervision when not on duty while in Topeka.
The girls’ were to report to the page supervisor on the fourth floor of the capitol building, 425-S, just outside the House Gallery between 8:00 and 8:15 a.m. Instructions from the page supervisor begin at 8:30 a.m. The pages’ workday generally ends at 3:45 p.m. Upon arrival each page must fill out an application form. The form is used to enter their name on the legislative payroll. Pages receive $3.00 per day. They also receive a certificate signed by their Representative.
