OLSON CREATES YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL - BRAZORIA COUNTY7/11/11
Washington, DC– Rep. Pete Olson (R-Sugar Land) today announced the inaugural meeting of his newly created Congressional Youth Advisory Council. The Council consists of high school students from across the 22nd Congressional District in Brazoria, Fort Bend, Galveston and Harris Counties. The goal of the advisory council is for the students to advise the Congressman on issues affecting the youth of America.
“I’m especially excited to hear about the concerns and priorities of these talented and committed young people,” Olson said.“The Advisory Council is a great opportunity for me to learn what issues are important to our future leaders. It's also a chance for these students to engage in the political process and become more familiar with how government impacts their daily lives. This experience will be a valuable and educational one for both the students and for me."

Dawson High School
