Hauppauge, NY - June 24, 2016 - Suffolk County Legislators Bill Lindsay and Monica Martinez spoke at today’s Suffolk County Legislature Page Program to discuss their experiences as elected officials and what led them to get involved with government.
The Page Program is designed to give students a peek into the life of a legislative aide and a feel for the hard work that goes into providing County services.
“It is refreshing to me to see young people getting involved with the governmental process” said Legis.
