SHELTON – State Representative participated in a panel discussion at Shelton High School on Thursday with local Planning and Zoning Commission member Jimmy Tickey and the Executive Director of the Democrat Party Jacqueline Kozin.
The event was hosted by the Shelton High School Junior State of America during fight apathy week.
“It is great to see some many young people getting involved in politics,” said Rep. Perillo. “We need more young people getting involved in their communities.”
Rep. Perillo also urged the students to read as much as they can about the issues impacting our state country and to always work to find common ground with friends or individuals with opposing viewpoints.
The Junior State of America is a civil, all-partisan, welcoming community of students, teachers, alumni, board, staff, and supporters.
