InsideAlbanyLWVS’ Students Inside Albany Winners, Sarah Vibbert and Alicia Xin, with Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin on Saturday, June 25, at CHAT American Grill in Scarsdale.Students Inside Albany is a four-day conference designed to increase students’ awareness of their responsibility in a representative government and provide the tools necessary for meeting that responsibility. Unfortunately, the conference was canceled this year due to Covid, but the League of Women Voters of Scarsdale was able to arrange a sitdown lunch with our student winners and elected officials. At CHAT American Grill in the Village, our student winners got to ask questions about why Stewart-Cousins and Paulin ran for office and what they think about the pressing issues facing our state and country. Both officials gave insight on the demands of their jobs and how they view the important role and voice of young people.
