“Christian Forde, a 10th-grader from Yelm, served as a legislative page Jan. 16-20. He was sponsored by 2nd District Rep. Jim McCune, R-Graham. Christian attends Yelm High School and is the son of Nikki and Jay Forde.
‘You get to meet a lot of great people and being able to see all the different locations and offices around the Capitol is very interesting,’ Christian said. ‘Being a page also teaches you responsibility and maturity. It was a great experience,'” quoting Rep. McCune’s website.
