Legislator for a day: Flat Stanley

HarrellState Rep. Gayle Harrell, R.-Stuart, had a constant companion with her on Thursday who brightened her day. Just call him Flat Stanley, a cutout character crayoned with abandon.

Harrell says her grandson, Tyler, who is 5 and in kindergarten, asked Harrell to bring Flat Stanley to the Legislature for the day.

Clearly tickled by Flat Stanley, Harrell says "He’ll go wherever I go." 

Tyler will be sharing the adventures of Flat Stanley during his busy day at the Capitol with his classmates at Saint Mary School in Fort Walton Beach.
