TALLAHASSEE — Brandon Ludwig, a student at Keystone Heights Junior/Senior High School, returned to the Lake Region Saturday after spending a week in the state capital as a legislative messenger.
His duties in the House of Representatives consisted mainly of delivering mail, but messengers also participated in several educational activities, including a mock session of the House of Representatives.
Ludwig said that during the week, he met with Rep. Charles Van Zant Sr.: his sponsor for the week, shared an elevator ride with Speaker of the House Steve Crisafulli and met and briefly engaged in a mock debate with Gov. Rick Scott. Ludwig also passed a bill during the mock session of the house.
