Assemblyman Raia answering questions from high school students participating in the mock press conference

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C – East Northport) held a mock press conference this past Friday with high school students from Half Hollow East, Commack, and Deer Park. Students were able to practice their journalistic skills by asking the Assemblyman questions regarding life and work in Albany. There were also student film crews to record the press conference.

“Experience is everything,” said Raia. “Providing students with the proper experience early on gives them an edge throughout the rest of their career. The students participating at the press conference will be future journalists, news anchors and producers. As their Assemblyman I hope that this event will help them get one step closer to their dream.”
