The Christian County LEAD Program continued their tours of important staples of the community this week. They recently traveled to Springfield to tour the Illinois State Capitol building.
State Senator Andy Manar says he is one of the lawmakers that welcomes the group to Springfield each year. He says it is one of the best parts of his day job.
Manar and local representative Avery Bourne both took time to visit with the LEAD participants during the visit. Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Patty Hornbuckle says she’s happy these lawmakers take the time to have face-to-face dialogue with their constituents in the program.
Hornbuckle says the group also received a complete tour of the capitol building during their visit.
