Legislator Jacobs Gives 5th Graders A Day to Remember at the Nassau County Legislature

Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) invited fifth graders from the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County to the legislature where they enjoyed a tour and a whole lot more. Legislator Jacobs arranged for the children to sit in on a meeting on the Lighthouse Project where they listened to the various speakers, and later she brought them to County Executive Tom Suozzi’s office too.

“It was such an exciting day for the children and I was so happy to be able to afford them this wonderful experience,” Legislator Jacobs said. “Seeing how government works firsthand is an excellent educational tool and I found their many questions very thought provoking and intelligent. Sitting in on an actual meeting was definitely an unexpected plus for them, one that they really seemed to enjoy.”
