Online Chats


Senator Patrick Leahy chatting with students on-line.Over the past several years Sen. Leahy has conducted many online chats with students of all ages throughout Vermont. Leahy has found them to be very informative and fun, both for the students and for the Senator himself.  The goal for these chats is to encourage student civic participation by demonstrating that government is accessible and accountable to their concerns.

Leahy is always impressed by the level of knowledge, curiosity, and creativity that our students' questions reflect. Questions range from topics such as landmines, the death penalty and the environment, to what it is like to be a United States senator and whether or not he believes that Champ, the Lake Champlain sea monster, exists.
