Washington, D.C. Office
Congressional interns are a vital part of my office in Washington, DC. Interns have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and many of the other important functions of a congressional office. This internship is a unique experience because of the intern’s involvement in the legislative process, the extensive networking opportunities, as well as the ability to live and work in our nation’s capital.
An internship in my District Office provides interns with the opportunity to see first-hand the impact that a congressional office has on the district as well as its constituents. Interns are an essential part of my District Office in Otsego.
