Skelos Welcomes Robert Stroehlein To The State Capitol In Albany
New York State Senate Deputy Majority Leader Dean G. Skelos (R-Rockvill Centre) was shadowed by Robert Stroehlein, a senior at Valley Stream Central High School on Tuesday, May 2, 2006. Robert was part of the "Students Inside Albany" Conference sponsored by The League of Women Voters of New York State. The Program is designed to increase high school students' awareness of their responsibility in a representative government and provide the tools necessary for meeting that responsibility. The students that participated also toured the State Capitol and were involved in a number of workshops where they heard speakers on topics such as the State budget, lobbying, open government and the role media plays in politics. Robert sat with Senator Skelos during session as he conducted the Senate’s Legislative Operations.
