State representative visits with high school politicians club

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 by PAUL CMIL in School

Joseph Confer, a sophomore at Northampton Area High School and a member of the Young Politicians Club, pulled off a few political tricks of his own. Based on his written request, state Rep. Marcia Hahn, R-138th, showed up for his meeting Dec. 13, 2019, even though no one in the audience is old enough to vote.

Hahn scratched the surface on how the legislative branch of the state works. She gave the highly interested students a glimpse of her trajectory in politics, starting with her initial work for various state representatives and culminating with her victory as a candidate.
