Summary of Internship
My mentor is Philip Meisner, Assemblyman Johnsonís Legislative Aid. However, I do not work with him exclusively; I work with all of the staff members in the office. As an intern, I am responsible for writing letters and e-mails, labeling, making phone calls, and helping with scheduling events. I took care of minor tasks, such as addressing letters or taking phone messages. Due to this year's campaigning goals, there were many mass mailings and events to attend, such as Senator Weinberg's birthday/campaign party. I communicated with staff members, campaign staff members, and the constituents.
