Valdosta - Although sponsored by Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss, John Eunice had the unique opportunity of meeting and working for all 435 members of Congress, including Mark Foley.

During his year on Capitol Hill, he spoke to Foley many times and even won a lunch with him.

He said at no time during his year as a page and dealing with Foley did he ever feel unsafe or uncomfortable and was disappointed to hear the news that lead to Foley's resignation. 
"It's always upsetting when you hear about someone you had respect for and have met before and feel like you had some sort of connection to and then you hear some sort of inappropriate behavior is occurring," says John Eunice, a student at Valdosta State University and the youngest City Councilman in Valdosta history.

Despite the Foley scandal, Eunice says he has no regrets concerning his time as a page and would encourage others to participate in the program if offered the chance.
