Torsten Spieler, a student at Avanti High School, served as a page this week in the Washington State House of Representatives. Sponsored by State Rep. Steve Tharinger (D-Sequim), Torsten is the son of Jen Waldref and Thilo Spieler of Olympia and Lacey. Pages assume a wide variety of responsibilities, from presenting the flags to distributing amendments on the House floor. Pages support the efficient operation of the Legislature while also receiving daily civics instruction, drafting their own bills, and participating in mock committee hearings.
