Puyallup teen serves as page in state House

Puyallup resident Aidan McKee traveled to Olympia last month to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by his 25th District Rep. Melanie Stambaugh, R-Puyallup.

The son of Kurt and Amanda McKee, Aidan enjoys reading, playing music, swimming, and spending time outdoors biking and running.

As part of his House page duties, Aidan navigated the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff. He also participated in opening ceremonies and assisted representatives on the House floor during voting.

Along with his page duties, Aidan attended page school every day to understand the operations of the Legislature. He also introduced a mock bill that would end physician-assisted suicide in Washington state by repealing the Death with Dignity Act.

“It is a joy for to me have the opportunity to sponsor young people like Aidan through the House page program,” said Stambaugh. “Aidan has a bright future ahead of him, and I wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.”

To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program.
