Assembly Minority Leader, Brian M. Kolb, (R,I,C-Canandaigua) is pictured (right) meeting with Chris Catt (left), a Romulus Central High School student who recently participated in the "Students Inside Albany Conference," sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation, Inc. Participants spend four days in Albany hearing from a number of speakers on topics such as lobbying, open government and the media's role in public policy decisions. Students also tour the Capitol and observe both the Senate and Assembly by spending an afternoon shadowing their legislators.
Catt is a junior graduating early to attend the Rotary Foreign Exchange Program where he will spend the next school year in South Africa. Upon his return, Catt plans to attend either SUNY Albany or Cornell University and intends to major in Industrial and Labor Relations and/or Pre-Law. Catt has worked part-time in New York State Senator Michael Nozzolio's district office since July 2008.
