Rep Porter Rep Perry with PACE Alachua girls small

March 12-13 were PACE Legislative Days in Tallahassee. PACE Centers statewide were there to lobby for funding for eduction for our girls.  PACE Alachua took 4 girls and were able to meet with everyone from our delegation:  Senator Rob Bradley,  Representatives Keith Perry, Elizabeth Porter and Clovis Watson Jr.  We were fortunate this year to get a special tour of the House Chamber by Representative Matt Hudson and a tour of the Senate Chamber by Senator Bradley.  This opportunity allowed PACE girls and staff to have a voice in the decision making process during session.  This was a great educational experience for the girls to learn about the House, Senate, Capitol and the Legislature. This was a fabulous trip.
