Ricky Hughes served as a page in the state House of Representatives

Ricky Hughes, a student at Spring Street International School in Friday Harbor, served as a page this week in the Washington State House of Representatives. Ricky, the son of Marlace and Rick Hughes of Eastsound, was sponsored by State Rep. Jeff Morris (D-Mount Vernon).

Pages assume a wide variety of responsibilities, from presenting the flags to distributing amendments on the House floor. Pages support the efficient operation of the Legislature while also receiving daily civics instruction, drafting their own bills, and participating in mock committee hearings.
