Dear Prince William parents and students,
At 7:30pm on Wednesday, Nov. 14th, we will host an orientation for parents and students in grades 7 through 12 who want to participate in the 2013 51st House District “Future Delegate Program” that we will host at the Virginia State Capitol in January and February. The orientation will be in the Board of County Supervisors chamber at the McCoart Government Complex at One County Complex Court in Woodbridge.
During the orientation session on Nov. 14th, I’ll brief applicants and their parents on the program, distribute application forms, and answer questions. Additionally, I’ll brief parents on the House of Delegates Page Program in 2014 so that interested students may apply in late 2013 for the two-month-long Page Program at the Virginia State Capitol in early 2014.
If selected for the Future Delegate Program, students will spend an entire day with me at the Virginia State Capitol. Students will accompany me to all sub-committee and committee meetings, press events, and the daily floor session of the Virginia House of Delegates. They will also have an opportunity to meet senior officials of the executive and legislative branches of Virginia state government.
All students who apply for the 2013 Future Delegate Program will be able to participate on a date that is convenient to the student’s family. The day will provide each student with a first-hand look at the legislative process in Richmond. All students are encouraged to apply and participate, regardless of party affiliation or viewpoint on matters of public policy.
AND IF YOU LIVE IN PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY AND KNOW OF STUDENTS IN GRADES 7-12 WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN THIS NEW PROGRAM, PLEASE FORWARD THIS INVITATION TO THEM. We are able to host a total of 68 students during the forthcoming session of the Virginia General Assembly!
I look forward to seeing students and parents this coming Wednesday, Nov, 14th, at 7:30pm in the Board of County Supervisors chamber at the McCoart Government Building on Prince William Parkway. To discuss the 2013 Future Delegate Program before or after the orientation, parents and students may contact me at DelRAnderson@house.virginia.gov
or at 571-264-9983.
And if I can ever assist you in any way, please call our legislative district office at 571-264-9983, or if your need is urgent and can’t wait until the next business day, at my Woodbridge home at 703-730-1380. We’re here to help and are as close as your keyboard or phone!
