Alachua county legislative day

By

A handful of local residents were in Talahassee on Wednesday to show legislators how great it is to live in Alachua County. This year’s theme was “Lucky to Live in Alachua County.” Students, teachers, and senior citizens went on the trip.

Executive director for Alachua County Legislative Day, Sandie Calkins says the trip has gone well in the past. She says, “I think they’ve been pretty successfull, we had a lot of people talk to us about Alachua county, and I think its a good thing for our people to get up and experience Talahassee for a day.”
