Childrens Week at the Capitol

March 31st, 2008 by flanews

Kids from across the state will visit the Capitol this week to learn about state government and try to influence lawmakers. The United Way kicked off its Childrens Week campaign, Sunday, by hanging picture in the rotunda of the Capitol. United Way workers said its more important now than ever for kids to meet with lawmakers.

We hope to remind legislators that its important to take care of Floridas parents and kids. Theres a lot of budget cuts going on and cuts are pending and you know we are bringing thousands of advocates together right now to speak to lawmakers and remind them that these programs are important and we need to preserve what we can, said Jason Zaborske the Childrens Week Coordinator

Later this week kids will set up a mock cabinet and hold a pretend cabinet meeting, theyll also get to meet the governor.
