Rep. Diana Urban presented a General Assembly Citation to Connecticut Kid Governor Jessica Brocksom of Milford in recognition of her dedication to the protection and care of animals.

Jessica Brocksom was elected on a platform that advocated the need for protecting and caring of animals.

“You are a voice for abused and neglected animals and your efforts lead the way for others. Your passion for our furry friends may only be surpassed by your kindness to them. We commend your leadership and wish you every success in the future,” Urban said.

The citation was given during Animal Therapy Day at the State Capitol.

Connecticut’s Kid Governor is a national award-winning statewide civics program for 5th graders created by the Connecticut Public Affairs Network at Connecticut’s Old State House.

Timed to coincide with Election Day in November, each school in Connecticut is eligible to enter one student candidate into a statewide election that other 5th graders vote in. The winning candidate serves a full-year term with all the benefits and responsibilities of being Connecticut’s Kid Governor.
