Tomah Teen serves as Page at Republican Convention
Jenna Stott of Tomah served as Page for the Republican Party of Wisconsin State Convention held on May 3rd - 5th in Wausau. While her Page duties centered mainly on the Convention sessions on Saturday, she also attended the Governor’s Reception on Friday evening, the banquet on Saturday evening, and the Prayer Breakfast on Sunday morning.
While working as a Page, Stott was able to observe the activities of the convention floor, including speeches by Governor Walker, Lt. Governor Kleefisch, Attorney General Van Hollen; Congressmen Ryan, Congressman Sensenbrenner, Congressman Petri and Congressman Duffy; and various other Republican leaders of Wisconsin. She was also able to observe the adoption of several resolutions which included a lot of parliamentary procedures. Off the convention floor she had the opportunity to meet and visit with many of these same people.
Stott was recommended for this opportunity by John Christy, Chairman of the Republican Party of Monroe County, and Nancy VanderMeer, a former Assembly Candidate for whom Jenna had volunteered many long hours. Christy said “Jenna had shown on many occasions that she has the confidence, competence, and composure required to be a Page. I think this was an experience that she will remember for a lifetime.” This is the seventh consecutive year that Monroe County has been represented in the Page and Sergeant-at-Arms program for this convention.
Other Monroe County residents that attended as delegates were Nancy VanderMeer of Tomah, Matthew Hoffland of Sparta, and John Christy of Sparta. Stott is the daughter of Paul & Deb Stott of Tomah and she attends Tomah Middle School.
