HARTFORD- State Representative Robert Siegrist (R-36) took part in Girl Scout Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, March 14, where he met with local Girl Scouts to discuss the issues they feel are most important to girls across the state.
Rep. Siegrist met with Juliette Linares from Chester, who achieved the gold award in 2017, which represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouts.
The scouts were able to sit with Rep. Siegrist, and ask him questions that were important to them.
They were curious to know specifically, what Rep. Siegrist finds most rewarding about his job, what he finds encouraging, and what the hardest bill he is working on now is.
“I really enjoyed speaking to these young ladies about their interests and ideas. They had some thought-provoking questions, and were very insightful. The Girl Scouts is a great organization that teaches young girls about leadership,” said Siegrist.
Girl Scout Day at the Capitol gave Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut a chance to meet one-on-one with legislators to learn more about our democratic process, and to highlight the important initiatives that 47,300 Girl Scouts and more than 19,000 Girl Scout volunteers find critical in every community across the state.
