Phinney resident Alex Van Loen serves as House page

Phinney Ridge resident Alex Van Loen , a student at Ballard High School, served as a page last week in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by state Rep. Reuven Carlyle (D-Seattle).


Pages perform a wide variety of responsibilities, from presenting the flags to distributing amendments on the House floor. In addition to contributing to the efficient operation of the Legislature, pages spend two hours each day in a classroom setting learning about the legislative process.
