Young Republicans and Young Democrats Explore Jefferson City

FHN Young Republicans and Young Democrats clubs took a field trip to Jefferson City on March 27, with supervisors Kim Coil and William Crow.

The field trip only took a couple hours to plan. Crow first had to contact Rep. Spencer’s Legislative Assistant and explain what they  were wanting to do and he then took care of it for them.

“I learned that being any kind of representative, whether it be state or district, is a lot harder work than I thought before going to Jefferson City,” Young Republicans member Sydney Hardin said.

Crow thought that it was important for the Young Republicans and Young Democrats to get to know their state- elected officials. Students that went on the field trip got to experience the daily lives of local politicians and to see the workings of the state capitol. They also toured the Supreme Court building and the Governor’s mansion.

“The best part of the trip for me was for the students to meet their representatives and realize that they are approachable and that they want to hear from students,” Crow said.

As of now, there is nothing specific set up, but both clubs are planning to meet again to discuss ideas for future field trips.

“I don’t know that I necessarily learned anything new, but it’s definitely different to actually see things first hand as compared to just learning about them through media,” Young Democrats member Tyler Ludwig said.
