South Huntington, NY - May 1, 2017 - Recently, Assemblymen Chad A. Lupinacci (R,C,I,Ref-South Huntington) and Andrew Raia (R,C,I,Ref-East Northport) held a mock press conference at the South Huntington Public Library. This press conference gave over 100 students from several Suffolk County high schools the opportunity to experience what official press conferences entail. Many of the topics discussed dealt with issues and legislation that were included in this year’s state budget, such as higher education, K-12 education and the heroin and opioid epidemic.
“I want to thank all the students from our local schools for attending the event yesterday, and demonstrating their willingness to learn one of the many aspects associated with serving as a representative in the Legislature,” said Lupinacci. “I hope they were able to get an understanding of how press conferences in the world of government work and that this even further spurred their interest in pursuing a degree in journalism at their next stage of education.”
The students who attended the event were from Brennen High School, Brentwood High School, Deer Park High School, North Babylon High School, and Walt Whitman High School.
